The King’s Singers to perform with Voices New Zealand

In 1968, the original six King’s Singers came together through their shared love of singing and quickly became world renowned for their mesmerising performances. Celebrating their 50 Year Anniversary in 2018 the King’s Singers chart their journey through the music – a breath-taking repertoire that has evolved to become one of the most diverse and compelling imaginable.

The King’s Singers have always been lauded for their flexibility and the diversity of their repertoire, which includes a panoply of commissioned works by many of the supreme composers of our times – including Sir John Tavaner, Toru Takemitsu, John Rutter, Luciano Berio, Nico Muhly, György Ligeti and Eric Whitacre.

The celebratory programme will include music from Gold – a triple-album of new recordings featuring 60 tracks spanning over 500 years, celebrating the amazing musical heritage of The King’s Singers, alongside especially commissioned anniversary pieces by contemporary composers Nico Muhly, Bob Chilcott and New Zealand’s Leonie Holmes.

As part of the New Zealand Festival and Auckland Arts Festival they will be joined on stage by our own internationally renowned choir Voices New Zealand – who will themselves be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their founding.

An alchemy of ancient and modern, serious and light- hearted, expected and unexpected, join one of Britain’s greatest musical exports and the best choral voices in New Zealand for a mesmerising musical trip from the Renaissance to now.
