30 January 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Durham Cathedral

Palace Green, Durham. DH1 3RL United Kingdom

Acclaimed worldwide for their virtuosity, life-affirming energy and charm, The King’s Singers are in global demand and are very much looking forward to performing at Durham Cathedral. The group tours across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australasia performing to hundreds of thousands of people each season. Instantly recognisable for their immaculate intonation, vocal blend, diction and incisive timing, The King’s Singers are consummate entertainers. Their repertoire has evolved to become one of the most diverse imaginable with over 200 commissions from leading composers including Luciano Berio, György Ligeti, Sir James MacMillan, Krzysztof Penderecki, Toru Takemitsu, Sir John Tavener, Gabriela Lena Frank and Eric Whitacre alongside a significant collection of close harmony arrangements from jazz standards to pop chart hits. In June 2017, the group will host their inaugural U.S. Summer School at De Pauw University, Indiana and in July 2017 will return for their 3rdU.K. Summer School at Royal Holloway (part of the University of London) where they are also Ensemble in Residence. Recently voted into the Gramophone Hall of Fame and with two Grammy® Awards to their name, rave reviews and sell-out concerts confirm that The King’s Singers remain one of the world’s finest vocal ensembles.

This performance is the first for many years of the King Singers at Durham cathedral and will be a concert not to be missed.
