The King's Singers collaborate with local ensemble The Springfield Choral Society

Grammy Award-winning a cappella ensemble The King’s Singers will be coming to Springfield to perform a concert featuring a mix of traditional vocal works as well as close harmony pieces from the group's much-loved, lighter repertoire. The Springfield concert will include a set of North American folk songs, concluding with “The gift to be simple.”

A special component of this concert is that The King’s Singers will perform a piece with a local ensemble, the Springfield Choral Society. The two groups are collaborating on “High Flight,” a piece by Bob Chilcott originally commissioned in celebration of The King’s Singer’s 40th birthday.

The Springfield Choral Society is known for high-quality performances presented in historically correct text settings and musical styles. Its body of work includes masses and motets by the great masters, carols and celebratory pieces and a range of outstanding contemporary choral selections. The Choral Society contains an exciting mix of amateur, professional and semi-professional singers, some of whom have taught music at elementary, secondary and college levels. Others, while engaging in various professions, enjoy performing choral music as their avocation. For more information visit
