Acclaimed Grammy Award-winning a capella vocal ensemble The King’s Singers return to New Zealand in June performing enduring classics from The Great American Songbook.

One of the world’s most celebrated ensembles, The King’s Singers will perform in Hamilton on Friday 27 June, Auckland on Saturday 28 June and in Christchurch on Tuesday 1 July.

The concerts will launch the ensemble’s new double CD ‘Great American Songbook’ in New Zealand, paying tribute to some of the most enduring and influential American popular songs of the 20th century with the best of Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, Irving Berlin and George Gershwin.

Featuring new arrangements by renowned jazz and choral composer Alexander L’Estrange, The King’s Singers bring their own consummate vocal talents and trademark British wit to this golden era of songs from Broadway musicals, Hollywood films and the American theatre stage and including favourites such as Let’s Misbehave, My Funny Valentine. The Lady Is A Tramp, I’ve Got You Under My Skin and Cry Me A River.

With a discography of more than 150 recordings and a history stretching back 46 years, The King’s Singers have set the standard for a capella worldwide. Recipients of two Grammy Awards, the Midem International Classical Award and recent inductees into the Gramophone Hall of Fame, their repertoire ranges across every genre from Renaissance motet to the coolest of vocal jazz.

The King’s Singers has its beginnings at England’s King’s College in Cambridge and just two years ago welcomed its first non-British member, New Zealand baritone Christopher Bruerton.
