A group of talented King’s College singers gathered in the school chapel this month to serenade classical concert-goers in our annual Vocal Concert.

Ably led by our expert vocal coaches, Naomi Harvey and Mark Lawson, the pupils sang numbers from across a range of genres and eras. The evening covered music from composers such as Brahms and Farmer, all the way through to hits from world-famous musicals including Les Misérables, South Pacific and The King and I.

An ensemble of Katie Clarke, Henry Adcock and Tom Hall opened the evening with the jolly madrigal, Fair Phyllis I Saw, followed by John Dowland’s renaissance lute song, Flow, my tears. Performers on the night also included Teal Sinfield, Loveday Hedgcock, Eleanor Clark, Lottie Knill, Reshma Rao, Ellie Redford, Oliver Mathew, Phoebe Hake, Marney Davies, Louis Benneyworth, Matthew Osborne and Tim Roberts.

Director of Music, Colin Albery, said: “We have such a range of talent among our singers and musicians here at King’s. This concert is one of many that provides an outlet for them to showcase these talents. I am very proud of their efforts. Michaelmas is always a busy term, particularly on the music front. It is testament to our pupils that they throw themselves in to these events with gusto, while still continuing to work hard in their academic lessons.”
