The King's Singers to perform
Feb. 13 in Fowler Center

Jan. 20, 2006 -- The King’s Singers will perform at Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive, on the campus of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Monday, Feb. 13, at 7:30 p.m.

Formed in 1968, the group was named when the six founding members were choral scholars from King’s College at the University of Cambridge. Over the years only a few members have come and gone, and their repertoire has remained all encompassing from medieval to renaissance, romantic to contemporary, to folk and pop.

Renowned for their commitment to blend, balance and intonation in their performances, the King’s Singers have become a prominent musical force in the United Kingdom. The King’s Singers’ current library contains more 2,000 individual pieces.

“The King’s Singers are one of the world’s premier acappella singing groups. We have worked diligently for three years to get the King’s Singers here,” said Jerome Biebesheimer, director of Fowler Center.

Performing in many of the world’s major concert halls, they have recorded more than 70 albums.

The list of venues where they have appeared includes European cathedrals, the Hollywood Bowl, Shea Stadium and Windsor Castle for the Royal Family. They have joined forces with many famous orchestras including the BBC Concert Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and, most recently, the Cincinnati Pops with whom they have released an album of Beatles music.

Each year, The King’s Singers performance around 100 concerts, traveling about six months of the year. Following their performance in Jonesboro, The King’s Singers will perform in Holland, Austria and throughout Germany.

Performance tickets for the Fowler Center concert may be purchased by calling 870-972-2781 or 1-888-278-3267, or online at

Prices are $30 and $20 for adults; $23 and $15 for ASU faculty and staff, senior adults, and K-12 students; with a special ASU student rate of $10 and $6.
