The King’s Singers - Gold
Time: Sunday, January 21 at 4:00 pm

Fifty years ago in 1968, the original six King’s Singers came together through their shared love of singing and quickly became renowned for their mesmerizing performances and the unique diversity of their music. GOLD charts a journey through the music that has defined the Kings’s Singers over the past 50 years, and moves on to exciting and unexplored musical worlds. An alchemy of ancient and modern, serious and light-hearted, expected and unexpected, GOLD crowns half a century of dedication to music, and looks ahead with unbridled energy to the next 50 years and beyond.

Acclaimed worldwide for their virtuosity, life-affirming energy and charm, The King’s Singers are in global demand. 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. 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.

Presenter: Brian Pinter, Bible scholar-in-residence at Christ Church UMC & frequent lecturer and instructor at St. Ignatius

We will explore the questions, spiritual tasks, and gifts that God gives us as we pilgrimage together into a deeper spiritual maturity.

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided and the program will conclude with Mass.
