King’s Singers bring harmonious spirit of new album ‘Finding Harmony’ to the Vilar Performing Arts Center
The King’s Singers release the new album “Finding Harmony,”as part of a new campaign to harness the positive power of music to bring people together and effect social change. Catch that ethos on full display at the Vilar Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m.
Released on Jan. 31, “Finding Harmony” explores the development of Western harmony over the past 800 years, celebrating music that has united different people all over the world, particularly in the face of oppression. Each selection comes from a range of communities, countries and genres to celebrate music from throughout history.
The album includes arrangements by a number of leading composers, such as young British composers Rebecca Dale and Toby Young, Mexican composer Jorge Cózatl, South African composer Neo Muyanga, world-famous Scottish composer James MacMillan, British singer and director Richard Wilberforce and Stacey V. Gibbs, one of America’s foremost arrangers of spirituals.
Jonathan Howard, bass in the King’s Singers, said: “We’ve wanted to make ‘Finding Harmony’ for a very long time. For years, we’ve noticed how music brings people together in an amazing way.”
The King’s Singers have released more than 30 albums and DVDs with Signum Classics, including their 50th anniversary 60-track album “GOLD,” a Grammy Award nominee in 2019.

“Instead of throwing $1,000 to a music relief fund — that’s great — I’d rather throw it to the three local guys who are struggling in my backyard.”
