25/01/2015 – A New Year with The King’s Singers

In January 2015, the Girls’ Choir of the Cathedral PUELLAE ORANTES was the organizer of the British band THE KING’S SINGERS concerts.

The King’s Singers are among the most respected – both by music lovers and critics – of vocal groups in the world, which is confirmed by the two-time awarding with the prestigious Grammy Award, in 2009 and 2012.

The band ‘The King’s Singers’ exists since 1968. Singers are open to all styles and genres of music. They perform over 120 concerts a year, regularly performing in Europe, the United States, Asia and Australia. About 200 works composed by leading contemporary composers were created for them. Their rich artistic output includes over 150 albums.

The concerts were held:

  • on January 16 at the Mościce Art Center in Tarnów
  • on January 17 at the ICE Kraków Congress Center
  • on January 18 at the NOSPR Concert Hall in Katowice

In the first part of the concerts, the band “The King’s Singers” presented a diverse repertoire, starting with Catalan Christmas songs, through musical postcards from Italy, Ukraine, Ireland, Scotland and Brazil, to pop songs by the band “The Beatles” and “Queen”. In the second part, together with the London band, the “Puellae Orantes” choir performed. The artists made together atmospheric songs – “Amazing Grace”, “Stille Nacht”, “The gift to be simple”, “Let it snow”, “Born on a new day” – arranged especially for this occasion by English composers. The concert ended with the American pop standard “Baby it’s cold outside”.

The song performed for the encore was the most enthusiastically received by the audience – it was “Szła dzieweczka do laseczka” in an arrangement by Łukasz Farcinkiewicz.

The unique artistic project has been a great success. Over 3,600 people listened to the concerts. Performances of the artists were awarded with a long standing ovation.

British singers have started the next artistic season with concerts in Poland. The members of the band expressed great joy in playing together with the “Puellae Orantes” choir. They presented words of appreciation for the vocal quality of the choir and the spontaneous Polish audience. They parted with the choir hoping for the next musical meeting.

The partner of the Concerts was TAURON Polska Energia.

The sponsor of the concert in Tarnów was ZZOiR WIA-LAN.
