18 / 07 / 2014 - Julian Gregory joins The King's Singers

It is with enormous pride that we can announce that Julian Gregory (tenor) will be joining us in September this year following the withdrawal of Benedict Hymas from the position for personal reasons.

 

“We were blessed with a world-class field of singers for this position and are thrilled that Julian has agreed to become a member of The King’s Singers, his voice having been on our radar for some time. He sings beautifully, and fits within the ensemble perfectly both on and off-stage. We’re all looking forward to working and touring with him very much” said Christopher Gabbitas.

 

Julian’s first performance with the group will be a charity concert on Thursday 25 September in Mayfield, UK, before touring across Europe and the United States, performing in several of the world’s most beautiful venues including Dresden Frauenkirche, Washington National Cathedral and the Budapest Palace of Arts.

 

On being appointed Julian, who had been unable to audition in April when Paul first announced his departure, said: “The opportunity to be in The King’s Singers only comes once and, although for me this has come mid-studies at the Royal Academy of Music, I’m truly delighted to be embarking on this new adventure at this early stage of my career. The Kings Singer’s is a group that I’ve revered since I was a child – my close friends can vouch for this! – so to now be in this unique position is unbelievable. I’m very much looking forward to an exciting time ahead.”
