The King's Singers, the iconic, double Grammy award winning British a cappella vocal ensemble that has been around (in various iterations) for over 40 years, is appearing in Sydney for one night only - on Saturday 25th June 2014, at the City Recital Hall Angel Place. The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are available for between $77 and $112 (adults).

The group is known for its versatility in being able to tackle a wide range of musical genres, from Renaissance motet to vocal jazz. This concert coincides with the launch of the group's new double CD, Great American Songbook. In this album, the King's Singers pay tribute to some of the most enduring and influential American popular songs of the 20th century, including the best of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and George Gershwin.

Highlights of the concert include the ensemble's witty take on The Lady is a Tramp, the lyrics of which have been slightly modified to include references to current events. You will also hear the sensual harmonies of My Funny Valentine.

Ever wondered where the group got its name? They are named after King's College in Cambridge, England, where the group was formed by six choral scholars.
