The King's Singers
A partnership with the Northern Arts and Cultural Centre and the Yellowknife Choral Society
The King's Singers are in global demand. Synonymous with the very best in vocal ensemble performance, their work appeals to a vast international audience. Every year they sing over 120 concerts, touring regularly to Europe, the United States, Asia and Australasia. Instantly recognizable for their immaculate intonation, impeccable vocal blend, flawless diction and incisive timing, The King's Singers are also consummate entertainers a class act with a delightfully British wit.
They are double Grammy award-winning artists, honoured for their 2009 release, Simple Gifts, and again in 2012 for their contribution to Eric Whitacre's album Light and Gold. Since signing to Signum Classics in 2003, The King's Singers have developed distinctively themed recording and concert programmes. Their studio album and live performance programme, Great American Songbook, includes seventeen new arrangements and, following the launch of the project in October 2013 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, it has been performed in concert to more than 20,000 people across fifteen countries.
Over many years the King's Singers have collected a huge number of wonderful songs from around the world, many of which have been arranged as encores when they visit those countries. These include folksongs, spirituals and popular songs from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia and the Americas. Last year they recorded an album of their favourite songs from around the world on a CD entitled Postcards. The first half of their program includes many of the songs from this recording, along with other works from their travels in Africa and Arabia.
