Founded by six Choral Scholars from King’s College Cambridge and this week celebrating their 40th anniversary, The King’s Singers have delighted audiences around the world with their incomparable musicianship combined with charm and wit.  From medieval music to masterpieces of the Renaissance, from romantic songs to folk, pop, jazz and contemporary commissions, their repertoire is astonishingly diverse and is continuously performed with their renowned quality of blend, balance, intonation and colour. With a discography of more than 80 albums, a Grammy nomination to their credit and four decades of enormous international popularity and acclaim, The King’s Singers are still unmatched for their musicality and sheer ability to entertain (The Times).

Mayfield Convent Chapel is the intimate setting for a magical all-Renaissance afternoon concert featuring several gems from this glorious period of sacred music.   Join the ensemble again at St Dunstan’s for a hugely entertaining evening that promises to appeal to an audience of all ages.

This evening’s concert is in honour of Mrs Julia Dalton, Headmistress of St Leonards-Mayfield School, who retires at the end of this term, in acknowledgement of her immense contribution to the school and to the community as a whole.

Tickets £24, £16, £8
