With The King’s Singers now back in the UK, looking forward to meeting friends a little to closer home over the next 10 days in Chelmsford, St David’s, Sheffield, Swaledale and Peterborough, looking back over the last two weeks highlights the incredible student choirs and teachers across the world, ensuring the tradition of choral singing remains strong in every culture.
The Gaude Mater Festival, Poland provided a calm and sacred start to the tour, followed by two wonderful workshops with the most-welcoming and enthusiastic students & teachers at the American School of Doha, Qatar. From there the KS travelled for the first time to the Philippines capital city, Manila, working with the Philippine Madrigal Singers and performing in the Cultural Centre of the Philippines, proving to be an unforgettable experience.
Flying on to China, the group spent a couple of days in Wenzhou (another first) before heading to Shanghai to re-visit Dulwich College, Shanghai. Their final performance at the Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre concluded this very special tour.
