Two King’s Singers call time on the group

February 12, 2018 by norman lebrecht


Two group members are stepping down in the jubilee year.

I’m writing to tell you all some news. After a lot of thought, I’ve decided to make 2018 my last
year as a member of The King’s Singers. It’s not a decision I came to lightly but the time feels
right. It’s been an honour to be in this incredible ensemble, and by the time I leave at the end
of December, I will have been a part of it for 10 years. I always wanted to leave the group on
a high and it doesn’t get much more of a high than at the end of the 50th anniversary! I love
the group, I always have and always will. I will always be a huge supporter of ‘the chaps’
going forward and will keep a keen eye on their amazing experiences around the world.

    I knew Simon Carrington’s mother, Jean De Silva – a cellist – but I suppose he’s long gone I should think.

      You’ll be pleased to read that Mr Carrington is still very much with us and has enjoyed both performing and academic careers. His website can be found here .
