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 .
