The group will perform songs from the great American songbook, featuring the works of Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, Harold Arlen, George Gershwin and others. A few of the classics they will present include "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," "The Best Is Yet to Come," "Cheek to Cheek" and "I've Got The World On a String."

The King's Singers, recent inductees to the Gramophone Hall of Fame and winners of multiple Grammy Awards, have been considered one of the highest-caliber a cappella groups since the group's formation at King's College, Cambridge, in 1968. Now comprised of countertenor David Hurley, countertenor Timothy Wayne-Wright, tenor Julian Gregory, baritone Christopher Bruerton, baritone Christopher Gabbitas and bass Jonathan Howard, The King's Singers continue to be one of the most sought-after and critically acclaimed vocal ensembles in the world.

The King's Singers are touring across the globe and have recently performed at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Washington National Cathedral, the Grand Philharmonic Hall of St. Petersburg and are scheduled to perform later this year in the major halls of Berlin, Milan, Turin, Venice, Rome, Amsterdam and Cambridge. The group also performed with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in 2007 and in 2002 as part of the Winter Olympic Games Cultural Olympiad in Salt Lake City.

The performance is sponsored by BRAVO! Professional Performing Arts at BYU, the university's concert series that plays host to many world-renowned guest artists from across the globe.
