WQXR Presents Christmas Songbook with The King’s Singers

Wednesday November 30 2016 • 7:00pm - 8:15pm ET
In-person event

The King's Singers


It’s an a cappella Christmas from England when The King’s Singers, one of the world’s most celebrated vocal ensembles, come to The Greene Space.

In an exclusive New York appearance, this male sextet — consummate entertainers with a delightfully British wit — perform selections from their new album, Christmas Songbook, featuring a mix of traditional carols and modern-day classics with a hint of swing. WQXR’s Jeff Spurgeon hosts.
