With “voices of spun gold” (BBC Music Magazine), The King’s Singers are masters of vocal harmony. These polished entertainers will sing a mix of ancient and contemporary, classical and popular, all delivered with “pinpoint precision and total rapport” (The Times, UK).
This irresistibly charismatic ensemble performs at the Festival on their whistle-stop ‘Gold’ world tour to celebrate 50 years in the business. Double Grammy® Awards winners, The King’s Singers are beloved the world over, from London’s Royal Albert Hall to New York’s Carnegie Hall, and now – for one performance only – in Auckland.
They will be joined on stage by our country’s internationally renowned chamber choir Voices New Zealand – who will themselves be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their founding.
This celebratory programme will feature especially commissioned anniversary pieces by contemporary composers Nico Muhly, Bob Chilcott and New Zealand’s Leonie Holmes.
Join the best choral voices in New Zealand and one of Britain’s greatest musical exports for a mesmerising musical trip from the Renaissance to now. Prepare to be charmed.
