The King's Singers

Dutch Reformed Church Universitas – Bloemfontein



The King’s Singers: “a class act with a delightfully British wit.”


Description: King Singers Tags: King SingersAcclaimed  worldwide  for  their  virtuosity,  life-affirming energy and charm, The King’s Singers are in global demand. The group was formed in 1965 and for the past 48 years, their work - synonymous with the very best in vocal ensemble performance, appeals to a vast international audience. Performing to hundreds of thousands of people each season, the group tours regularly  to  Europe,  North  and  South  America,  Asia  and  Australasia.  Instantly  recognisable  for  their immaculate intonation, vocal blend, diction and incisive timing, The King’s Singers are consummate entertainers.  Concert goers from Bloemfontein and surrounding areas have the opportunity to experience this extra-ordinary vocal ensemble in the Dutch Reformed Church Universitas.


The group’s repertoire has evolved to become one of the most diverse and compelling imaginable. The King’s Singers have commissioned over 200 works, including landmark pieces from leading contemporary composers  including  Luciano  Berio,  György  Ligeti,  Sir  James  MacMillan,  Krzysztof  Penderecki,  Toru Takemitsu,  Sir  John  Tavener,  Gabriela  Lena  Frank  and  Eric  Whitacre.  They  have  also  commissioned arrangements  of  everything  from  jazz  standards  to  pop  chart  hits,  explored  medieval  motets  and Renaissance madrigals, and encouraged young composers to write new scores.


In addition to performing to capacity audiences and creating highly regarded and much-loved recordings, The King’s Singers share their artistry through numerous workshops and masterclasses around the world. 


Double Grammy® award-winning artists, the group were honoured in 2009 for their Signum Classics release, Simple Gifts, and again in 2012 for their contribution to Eric Whitacre’s Light and Gold album on Universal/Decca.  Recently voted into Gramophone Hall of Fame, rave reviews and repeated sell-out concerts confirm that The King’s Singers remain one of the world’s finest vocal ensembles.
