The King’s Singers celebrates 50 golden years of singing

Published on 05 February 2018

Come February 23 and 24, The King’s Singers celebrates 50 golden years of singing with two concerts at the Victoria Concert Hall.

In 1968, the original six King’s Singers came together through their shared love of singing and quickly became renowned for their mesmerising performances and the unique diversity of their music. From the rich polyphony of sacred renaissance music to familiar tunes you hum to, GOLD charts a journey through the music that’s defined their career over the last 50 years, and moves on to exciting and unexplored musical worlds. An alchemy of ancient and modern, serious and light-hearted, expected and unexpected. GOLD crowns half a century of dedication to music, and looks ahead with unbridled energy to the next 50 years and beyond. The second day of their Singapore visit also presents a very special collaboration with the Singapore Symphony Children’s Choir. The marriage of charming virtuosity and youthful energy promises a memorable evening of delights.

Acclaimed worldwide for their virtuosity, life-affirming energy and charm, The King’s Singers are in global demand. Their work, synonymous with the very best in vocal ensemble performance, appeals to a vast international audience. Performing to hundreds and thousands of people each season, the group tours regularly to Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australasia. Instantly recognisable for their immaculate intonation, vocal blend, diction and incisive timing, The King’s Singers are consummate entertainers.
