Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The King's Singers (celebrating 45 years) launch a new studio album with their world premiere live performance of 'The Great American Songbook', containing hits such as 'Cheek to Cheek', 'My Funny Valentine' and 'Cry Me A River'.

One of the most productive periods of song-writing in history began in America with composers such as Gershwin, Kern, Berlin and Porter in the early 1920s, and continued through to the early 1960s. With 17 brand new a cappella arrangements by jazz composer and arranger Alexander L’Estrange, The King’s Singers bring their own unique performance style to this music.

(The show takes place in the Elgar Room, which has cabaret-style unreserved seating and has been transformed into a jazz-club setting for the event. Enter via Door 8.)
