As the Petworth Festival celebrates its ‘significant’ anniversary, one of the UK’s top vocal ensembles ascends to even greater heights. A major musical export and a shining tribute to the British choral tradition, the King’s Singers, reach their half century in 2018 and the Festival is privileged to stage one of the ensemble’s special, celebratory concerts.
The King’s Singers are in global demand. Every season this double-Grammy winning six-man vocal ensemble performs their diverse repertoire with unique charm and British wit to all kinds of music lovers worldwide, but rarely in their anniversary year will there be an opportunity to hear them in such intimate surroundings as in Petworth. Their Gold programme includes the vast range of music that has given the ensemble its reputation, music from Palestrina, through Poulenc to the groups’ famous Party Bag: classic audience favourites and brand new surprises in their signature close-harmony style.
“...they are still unmatched for their sheer musicality and ability to entertain.” The Times
