One of the world’s most famous vocal groups – “The King’s Singers” – will be visiting Latvia again during the World Choir Games. The group was founded in 1968 and since then has already recorded more than 150 albums, two of which also received prestigious Grammy Awards. “The King’s Singers” consist of six musicians, currently two countertenors, a tenor, two baritones and a bass, and give more than a hundred concerts each year. To sing everything written for six voices – from medieval music to contemporary jazz melodies – is what “The King’s Singers” believe is the group's formula for success.
