The esteemed conductor René Clausen won a hat-trick at the 55th annual GRAMMY awards at the weekend. A recording of his composition, “Life and Breath: Choral Works by René Clausen,” which was performed by the Kansas City Chorale, was nominated for Best Engineered Classical Album, Best Choral Performance and Classical Producer of the Year for Blanton Alspaugh, and won all three categories.
The King’s Singers were privileged to work with René and the Concordia Choir when they recorded the album High Flight. Released in 2011, the group recorded the joint tracks with the Concordia Choir during their tour to the US in May 2010, including “The Stolen Child” by Eric Whitacre and the title track of the CD “High Flight” by Bob Chilcott. The album is available to purchase from The King’s Singers webshop here.
Congratulations to René and the team for their success this year.
