- “The outstanding vocal talent, flawless intonation, and precise harmony are always breathtakingly moving.”

- - The Guardian
One of their characteristics is their ability to effortlessly convey various styles and genres to the audience, providing a unique experience that has never been seen before. As a traditional British a cappella group, they adhere to the artistic heritage they possess while simultaneously pushing beyond the boundaries of their repertoire. Based on this diverse repertoire, they regularly perform at major cities, festivals, and concert halls in Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia, including venues such as Carnegie Hall, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Mozarteum Salzburg, Tonhalle Zürich, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Helsinki Music Centre, Sydney Opera House, Tokyo Opera City, and the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing. Recently, the ensemble has been commissioned to perform the works of composer James MacMillan, collaborating with the Scottish Royal Orchestra at the Edinburgh International Festival. They have also been consistently engaged in collaborations with orchestras, showcasing their versatility.
The King's Singers have won two Grammy Awards and an Emmy Award, and have been recognized for their contributions by being inducted into the Gramophone Hall of Fame. In celebration of the ensemble’s 50th anniversary in 2018, they released a commemorative album called “GOLD,” featuring works by composers such as Bob Chilcott, John Rutter, and Nico Muhly. This album was soon followed by a large-scale world tour, bringing joy to audiences around the globe.
Their dedication, stemming from their desire to explore new repertoire, has naturally fueled their creativity. The King's Singers have a wide-ranging repertoire that includes over 200 songs entrusted to them by some of the greatest modern composers, such as John Tavener, Judith Bingham, Eric Whitacre, György Ligeti, Luciano Berio, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Tōru Takemitsu. These works stand alongside numerous custom arrangements that they have crafted themselves. Their commissioned works and arrangements are primarily released through the music publishing company Hal Leonard, and have been purchased over 2 million times worldwide. The collaboration with instrumental ensembles that The King's Singers presented in their early years played the most significant role in establishing their sound and style. Through this collaboration, the ensemble achieved a historic innovation that has spanned over half a century and built a success story through 28 members.
To share the charm of ensemble singing, The King's Singers travel around the world each season, conducting group workshops and individual online educational programs. In addition, in commemoration of the ensemble’s 50th anniversary in 2018, The King's Singers demonstrated a strong commitment to bringing the joys of choral singing to the next generation of audiences by establishing a global foundation.
The King's Singers were officially founded on May 1, 1968, by six graduates of King's College, Cambridge. The original vocal lineup consisted of two countertenors, one tenor, two baritones, and one bass, and they have never deviated from this arrangement since then. After 55 years since its establishment, the world has changed significantly, but The King's Singers continue to spread the joy of singing, striving to inspire audiences with their high artistry and a sense of excitement for the musical future.
