The King’s Singers
Fri 8 Sep, 7:30pm
Holy Cross Church, Cowbridge
Cowbridge Music Festival is proud to welcome the world-renowned King’s Singers to open this year’s festival with an eclectic programme to include Lassus, Byrd and Brahms, as well as their famous close harmony signature pieces.
Acclaimed worldwide for their virtuosity, life-affirming energy and charm, The King’s Singers are in global demand.
The group tours across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australasia performing to hundreds of thousands of people each season. Instantly recognisable for their immaculate intonation, vocal blend, diction and incisive timing, The King’s Singers are consummate entertainers. Their repertoire has evolved to become one of the most diverse imaginable with over 200 commissions from leading composers including Luciano Berio, György Ligeti, Sir James MacMillan, Krzysztof Penderecki, Toru Takemitsu, Sir John Tavener, Gabriela Lena Frank and Eric Whitacre alongside a significant collection of close harmony arrangements from jazz standards to pop chart hits. In June 2017, the group will host their inaugural U.S. Summer School at DePauw University, Indiana and in July 2017 will return for their 3rd U.K. Summer School at Royal Holloway (part of the University of London) where they are also Ensemble in Residence. Recently voted into the Gramophone Hall of Fame and with two Grammy® Awards to their name, rave reviews and sell-out concerts confirm that The King’s Singers remain one of the world’s finest vocal ensembles.
