THIS IS A PAST EVENT

The King's Singers

Celebrated worldwide, The King’s Singers are a class-act with delightfully British wit, "still unmatched for their sheer musicality and ability to entertain" (The Times, London). From Gesualdo and Gyorgy Ligeti to Michael Buble, they are instatnly recognizable for their spot-on intonation, impeccable vocal blend, flawless articulation of the text, and incisive timing.

"Fusing forms, timbres and styles, they turn education and entertainment into art and back again" (The New York Times).
