The King's Singers

Six British gentlemen who continue to reign as the kings of a cappella in the world!

The King's Singers ( A Capella )

Formed in 1968 by six students from King's College, Cambridge University. They quickly became famous in the British music world, and at the same time attracted the attention of the world. More than 30 years after its formation, the group continues to captivate audiences around the world with its unparalleled musicality and witty stage performances. The King's Singers' repertoire covers a wide range of genres, from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, Romantic to contemporary, and folk and pop music from around the world. Since his debut concert, he has commissioned works from famous composers such as Krzysztof Penderecki, Luciano Berio, Peter Maxwell Davis, and Ned Rorem, and now has more than 100 pieces.

In addition to performing in many famous concert halls around the world, he has also given concerts at churches in Europe, the Hollywood Bowl, Shea Stadium, home of the New York Mets, and Windsor Castle. He has also performed with many famous orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, and Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and recently released a Beatles album produced by George Martin with the Cincinnati Pops. In addition, he has made more than 70 recordings in collaboration with Kiri Te Kanawa, George Shearing, Evelyn Glennie, Dudley Moore, and Bruce Johnston of the Beach Boys.

Currently, they are also passionate about educational activities in order to convey their unique musicality and performance to as many people as possible. In addition to regularly giving master classes at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, they have been given the title of Prince Consort Ensemble exclusively at the Royal Academy of Music in London since 1996. These activities are one of their pleasures, but at the same time, these activities themselves are the driving force that makes The King's Singers reign at the top of the world.
