The King's Singers

An ensemble of unwavering musical excellence, the incomparable King’s Singers are also recognized as masterful entertainers – a class act with a delightfully British sense of humor. Their generous spirit and magical ability to move audiences ensure their enduring popularity. “They make splendid use of vocal arrangements to tap into the current cultural idiom. Fusing forms, timbres and styles, they turn education and entertainment into art and back again” (The New York Times).

“The superlative vocal sextet” (The Times, London)

“They remain consummate entertainers” (The Boston Globe)

Spivey Hall Friends Concert Sponsors: Drs. Lila and Lonnie Roberts
