The world-renowned vocal ensemble The King’s Singers will make their Master Players debut during their historic tour of North America celebrating their 50th Golden anniversary.
Originally formed in 1968, The King’s Singers were founded by six recently-graduated choral scholars from King’s College in Cambridge. Their vocal line-up was (by chance) two countertenors, a tenor, two baritones and a bass, and the group has never wavered from this formation since. This year, The King’s Singers are presenting their 50th anniversary season: GOLD. Everything in this GOLD season, from triple-album to book and concert tour, celebrates the amazing musical heritage of The King’s Singers and looks at the bright future of vocal music in all its forms.
This event is co-sponsored by UD Institute for Global Studies.
