Details

For their fifth performance at Duke, the King's Singers present a signature holiday program. One of the first vocal ensembles inducted into Gramophone's "Hall of Fame," the King's Singers are famous across the world for their unique blend of the English choral tradition, popular music, modern composition, and a variety of other genres, resulting in a sound that defies easy categorization. Their performances bring matchless technique and endearing engagement with audiences, skills honed across their 55 years as an ensemble.

The King's Singers' Holiday Program emerges naturally from their conviction that music has the power to unite people and communities, providing a chance for disparate groups to come together in song and fellowship. Their program features Christmas favorites, and also highlights the legacy of English Renaissance composer William Byrd, and explores the works of Scandinavian composers like Norway's Ola Gjeilo. They conclude by offering a convivial jaunt through the magical holiday legacy of Disney music.
