The King's Singers

“Versatility and sheer musicianship have kept them at the top of the range of acappella consorts for an amazing 40 years” (The Guardian)

Overview

HarrisonParrott is delighted to have arranged The King’s Singers successful Asian tours (South Korea, China, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur) in 2010 and 2011. In spring 2013, the ensemble made a hugely successful debut tour of South America. The group returned to Asia in 2014, 2015 and 2016, performing in China, Korea, Japan and Singapore.

Described as possessing an “impeccably manicured vocal blend, enchanting the ear from first to last note” (Gramophone Magazine), The King’s Singers maintain the highest calibre of a cappella performance, and continue to be one of the most sought-after vocal ensembles in the world. Recognition of that fact was underlined by a prestigious Grammy award in 2009.

Recognition of that fact was underlined by a prestigious Grammy award in 2009. The group has received many awards and plaudits for their recordings and is fast approaching 100 album releases. Now recording with Signum Classics, the group has covered music from the renaissance in 'The Golden Age: Siglo de Oro' (“unmissable” - Classic FM Magazine), to 'Landscape & Time', a contemporary album (“impeccable singing” - Gramophone Magazine) and 'Simple Gifts', a studio album of folk, spiritual and pop, released in the group’s 40th anniversary season in 2008, which went to No.1 in the iTunes crossover charts and won a Grammy Award in 2009. The charm and wit of The King’s Singers is further enjoyed through many workshops and masterclasses. The group holds the title of Prince Consort Ensemble in Residence at The Royal College of Music in London, and holds a biannual summer course at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival.
