One of the world's most celebrated vocal ensembles, The King's Singers have a packed schedule of concerts, recordings, media and education work that spans the globe. Instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, impeccable vocal blend, flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing, they are also consummate entertainers: a class act with a delightfully British wit.

During the 2013-2014 concert season, The King’s Singers perform across the globe in some of the world’s most famous venues. Their concert schedule will take them to the United States, Russia, China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, Latvia, Hungary and Poland.

Launched in autumn 2013 at the Royal Albert Hall (London), new studio recording and live performance project “Great American Songbook” includes seventeen brand new arrangements written specifically for the group by Alexander L’Estrange.

With a discography of over 150 recordings, The King’s Singers have garnered both awards and significant critical acclaim, including a Grammy® for their studio album “Simple Gifts” on Signum. In June 2013, the group’s contribution to classical recording was recognised when they were selected as one of only two vocal ensembles to join the Gramophone Hall of Fame, marking their influence and inspiration across the years. A new collaborative project sees the group work with oboist Albrecht Mayer for a disc of works on the theme of winter, released on Deutsche Grammophon.

Deeply committed to new choral music, they have commissioned over 200 works from prominent contemporary composers and choral luminaries, including Whitacre, Richard Rodney Bennett, Berio, Maxwell Davies, Ligeti, Lukaszewski, Penderecki, Rutter, Takemitsu and Tavener. The group are committed to maintaining and developing the international choral canon by commissioning new works from both young and established composers, with the 2013-2014 season seeing new works from both James MacMillan and Joanna Marsh.

The King’s Singers have an extraordinary history of television appearances. A favourite of The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, they performed with them for the Winter Olympics and appeared in their recent Christmas concert, which was broadcast on PBS across the US to a combined live audience of 80,000 and is available on DVD. Their televised performance at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall, London was awarded a Midem International Classical Award.

In addition to their sell-out concerts worldwide, The King’s Singers share their artistry through numerous workshops and masterclasses, and by publishing prodigious quantities of sheet music: at present, they have over two million items in circulation through their publisher, Hal Leonard. Their arrangements are sung the world over by school and college choirs, and by ensembles both amateur and professional.
