ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge is undoubtedly one of the world’s best known choral groups. Every Christmas Eve millions of people worldwide tune into A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, a service broadcast by the BBC since 1928, making it the longest established annual broadcast in history. In the USA the service has been broadcast by American Public Media since 1982 and the televised Christmas service, Carols from King’s, celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2014. The Choir’s international fame and reputation, enhanced by an extensive recording catalogue, has led to invitations to perform around the world, most recently Europe, USA, Asia, Australia and South America.
Stephen Cleobury has been Director of Music at King’s for over 30 years, during which time he has developed fruitful relationships with leading orchestras and soloists, among them the Academy of Ancient Music, Britten Sinfonia and the Philharmonia, and has founded two high-profile series in the college calendar, Concerts at King’s and Easter at King’s, from which the BBC regularly broadcasts. Beyond Cambridge he is Conductor Laureate of the BBC Singers, and is in demand as a conductor, organist, adjudicator and leader of choral workshops: this season has taken him to Madrid, Paris, Stockholm, Seattle and Cleveland, Ohio. Stephen was appointed CBE in 2009.
