Fun Facts:

  • The King’s Singers, a British a cappella vocal ensemble founded in 1968, is named after King's College in Cambridge, England, where the group originally formed.
  • The group always consists of six singers, with membership changing over the years. Although none of the original members remain with the group, performances often feature collaborations with past members.
  • The King’s Singers album Simple Gifts won the Grammy® for Best Classical Crossover Album in 2009, and their contribution to Eric Whitacre’s album Light and Gold won the Grammy® for Best Choral Performance in 2012. In 2013, the group was inducted into the Gramophone Hall of Fame.
  • The London Times has praised The King’s Singers for their “Pinpoint precision, total rapport, crisp diction, faultless tuning and a seemingly effortless ability to switch between different stylistic requirements.” “The King’s Singers are out-and-out entertainers,” raves The Edmonton Journal.
  • This concert features beloved classics and newly commissioned works by New York-based composer Nico Muhly, British composer Toby Hession, former King’s Singer and internationally-celebrated composer Bob Chilcott, frequent King’s Singers composer Alexander L’Estrange and choral legend John Rutter.
  • The Twin Cities loves The King’s Singers—their Orchestra Hall performances are known to sell out.
