21–27 June 2020, Princeton University, New Jersey
The next King’s Singers Summer School is coming in June 2020! This time we’re heading stateside to the US, to the beautiful grounds of Princeton University, New Jersey. It’s an honour to be hosted by one of the finest academic institutions in America, as well as having dozens of faculty- and student-led singing groups and a robust choral program run by former King’s Singer, Gabriel Crouch.
Participants can expect a fun, varied and challenging week! Those of you who have been to one of our Summer Schools before will know this, but for any new applicants, all of the most important aspects of The King’s Singers’ craft can be distilled into one over-riding concept: listening. We want to share with you during this week how we listen, how we adapt to what we hear, and how we deliver the message of any song to our audiences.
The Summer School is structured around tuition by us, but it will also include presentations and workshops with some special guests. These will include an interactive session on Southern African Vocal Music with Tanyaradzwa Tawengwa, and a performance by opera singer Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen, both of whom are recent Princeton graduates, and there will also be an opportunity to perform Compline in the Princeton University Chapel. We will continue to announce our guests over the upcoming months.
With The King’s Singers, it’s always ‘work hard, play hard’, so there will be many chances to let your hair down with evening activities and time to socialise in and around the singing. Participants will have the chance to really get to know the six members of the group, and to share stories from all around the world.
Whether you are an existing ensemble, or an individual singer looking to be placed in an ensemble created specifically for the Summer School, we welcome your application and hope that you can join us!
