This event is part of Clifton International Festival of Music.
This whirlwind musical adventure celebrates half a century of The King’s Singers and the music that defined their first fifty years, inspired by the unique spirit that has made them a name recognised the world over.
This choral pilgrimage savours the amazing diversity of music and musicians from soaring renaissance polyphony to folk arrangements, and brand new music written specially for this anniversary tour, holding up composers, songwriters and singers of all kinds side by side.
Come and join us for the ride.
