Following their annual summer break, The King’s Singers return to the concert platform on Thursday 25 September for a charity concert in Mayfield, UK, followed by a concert in Rochester Cathedral on Friday 26 September. Both performances showcase a programme of some of the group’s most-loved repertoire, ranging from sacred music by Byrd and Tallis, French art song, folksongs from around the world and music from the Great American Songbook.
September also sees the group welcome new tenor Julian Gregory who has succeeded Paul Phoenix. On being appointed Julian, who had been unable to audition in April when Paul first announced his departure, said: “The opportunity to be in The King’s Singers only comes once and, although for me this has come mid-studies at the Royal Academy of Music, I’m truly delighted to be embarking on this new adventure at this early stage of my career. The Kings Singer’s is a group that I’ve revered since I was a child – my close friends can vouch for this! – so to now be in this unique position is unbelievable. I’m very much looking forward to an exciting time ahead.”
