Celebrating 55 years of The King’s Singers…
and 100 Years of Disney

The King’s Singers have represented the gold standard in a cappella singing on the world’s greatest stages for over fifty years. They are renowned for their connection and engagement with their audiences, their unrivalled technique, versatility and skill in performance, and for their consummate musicianship. What has always distinguished the group is an unprecedented range of styles and genres, while also honouring their origins in the British choral tradition. They are known and loved around the world, appearing regularly in major cities, festivals and venues across Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia, including Carnegie Hall, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Helsinki Music Centre, Sydney Opera House, Tokyo Opera City and the National Centre for the Performing Arts, Beijing. They also work with orchestras, recently including a specially commissioned work by Sir James MacMillan with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra at the Edinburgh International Festival.

“It is with great delight that I welcome back the King’s Singers to The Cumnock Tryst. Since they were founded in 1968 they have been at the top of British choral performance, and have attracted a huge international following. I have been very fortunate to work with them in recent years, composing a number of works specifically for these glorious young voices. Their concert in Trinity Church is not to be missed!”
Sir James MacMillan

This performance will be British Sign Language interpreted by long time Tryst Festival concert goer Paul Whittaker OBE.
