Description

The Choir of King’s College London is one of the leading university choirs in England and has existed in its present form since 1945. It consists of some thirty choral scholars reading a variety of subjects.

The choir’s principal role at King’s is to provide music for chapel worship, with weekly Eucharist and Evensong offered during term, as well as various other services. Services from the chapel are frequently broadcast on BBC Radio; the Epiphany Carols Service was broadcast on Radio 3 in January 2017. The choir also regularly sings for worship outside the university, including at Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

In addition, the choir gives many concert performances. Recent festival appearances in England include the Spitalfields Festival, Oundle International Festival, and the Christmas Festival at St. John’s Smith Square. In June 2017 it joined forces with Britten Sinfonia to give the UK premiere of Samuel Barber’s The Lovers (Chamber Version) at Kings Place. The choir tours widely, with recent destinations including Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, and the USA. In July 2017 it served as choir-in-residence for the northeast convention of American Guild of Organists and Royal Canadian College of Organists in Montreal.

The choir has made many recordings, and enjoys an ongoing relationship with Delphian Records.
