“The superlative vocal sextet.” (The Times) Acclaimed for their life-affirming virtuosity and irresistible charm, The King’s Singers want to take you on a musical adventure to celebrate their 50th birthday. It is an adventure that gives thanks for all the music that has defined their first 50 years, inspired by the unique maverick spirit that guided the original six King’s Singers to keep every performance as fresh and varied as possible. This holiday season performance will feature seasonal songs alongside some of the ensemble’s favourite repertoire.
