The King's Singers have represented the gold standard in a cappella singing on the world's greatest stages for over fifty years, maintaining their formation ever since the ensemble’s debut. A key to the group's success has been their ability to evolve over the years while always retaining their special sound and musical integrity. Their distinctive British charm, coupled with unrivalled technique and consummate musicianship, is reflected in both the group’s rich heritage and its extraordinary wealth of original works and unique collaborations. Winner of two Grammy Awards and an Emmy, the commitment to creating a new repertoire has always been central to the group, with numerous commissioned works by many leading composers, including György Ligeti, Luciano Berio, Krzysztof Penderecki and Toru Takemitsu.  

Dedicated to humanity’s glorious musical heritage spanning five centuries, the evening's carefully chosen programme – Legacies – affords an enchanting glimpse into the limitless expanses of musical diversity; juxtaposing renaissance and romanticism, the original and arranged, while exploring the delights of our shared musical past and modernity.
