Performers
The King's Singers

In 1968, the original six King’s Singers came together through their shared love of singing and quickly became renowned for their mesmerising performances and the unique diversity of their music. From the rich polyphony of sacred renaissance music to familiar tunes you hum to, GOLD charts a journey through the music that’s defined their career over the last 50 years, and moves on to exciting and unexplored musical worlds. An alchemy of ancient and modern, serious and light-hearted, expected and unexpected. GOLD crowns half a century of dedication to music, and looks ahead with unbridled energy to the next 50 years and beyond. The second day of their Singapore visit also presents a very special collaboration with the Singapore Symphony Children’s Choir. The marriage of charming virtuosity and youthful energy promises a memorable evening of delights.
