The Gold Standard of A Cappella Singing

Illuminated Voices

The King’s Singers have represented the gold standard in a cappella singing on the world’s greatest stages for over 50 years. They are renowned for their connection and engagement with their audiences, their unrivalled technique, versatility and skill in performance, and for their consummate musicianship, drawing both on the group’s rich heritage and pioneering spirit to create an extraordinary wealth of original works and unique collaborations. Their extensive discography has led to numerous awards including two Grammy Awards, an Emmy Award, and a place in Gramophone magazine's inaugural Hall of Fame.

 

The King’s Singers were formed in 1968, when six recent choral scholars from King’s College, Cambridge, gave a concert at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall. By chance, the group was made up of two countertenors, a tenor, two baritones and a bass, and the group has maintained this formation ever since that debut. The current members are Patrick Dunachie (Countertenor), Edward Button (Countertenor), Julian Gregory (Tenor), Christopher Bruerton (Baritone), Nick Ashby (Baritone), Jonathan Howard (Bass).

 

The Georgia State University Singers will join The King’s Singers to perform a few songs under the direction of Director of Choral Activities at GSU, Dr. Deanna Joseph.
