The King’s Singers are delighted to announce their collaboration with Royal Holloway, University of London as Artists in Residence. They began this term with a wonderful afternoon working with the Chapel Choir as a whole. They are looking forward to their journey with the Choir, and their inspiring Director, Rupert Gough.
Rupert Gough, Director of Choral Music at Royal Holloway, University of London, said: “A cappella singing, that is small groups with one voice to each part and no conductor, is now a key part of our training for choral scholars at Royal Holloway. The King’s Singers are the undisputed world masters at this kind of performing and what they bring to my students enhances not only their individual musicianship but the choir as a whole now has an intense musical bond – like that of the finest string quartet or orchestra”.
Charlie Ruck, second year choral scholar, said: “It is an absolute privilege to be taught by the front runners in the field of ensemble singing. Their vast knowledge of different genres and performance presentation is essential to us in developing our careers in singing, whether that be the ultimate goal of choral singing or as a soloist. What The King’s Singers are able to offer to us is second to none.”
