The King’s Singers
Christmas Songbook

Acclaimed worldwide for their virtuosity, life-affirming energy, and charm, the King’s Singers are consummate entertainers, instantly recognizable for their immaculate intonation, vocal blend, diction, incisive timing, and delightfully British wit.

UMS President Ken Fischer presented the King’s Singers during an epic 1980s snowstorm in Washington, DC, one of the very first groups that he ever presented, and the group returns to celebrate Fischer’s final year before retiring with a special holiday program that includes works by Lassus, Tchaikovsky, Holst, Rutter, and Irving Berlin, as well as many traditional favorites. “These six singers can do almost anything a full-sized chorus can do, with a degree of perfection that drops the jaw and delights the ear.” (Seattle Times)
