King's Voices, the mixed voice choir of King's College, was founded in October 1997 under the direction of Dr. John Butt (Director of Studies for Music at King's, 1997-2001) to give the women of King's the opportunity to contribute vocally to the musical life of the College. The choir's current Director is Ben Parry, Assistant Director of Music at the College.
The choir has a regular programme of rehearsals and services and sings Evensong in the Chapel every Monday during University term. In addition to these services, King's Voices sings in the College Musical Society's Lent Term and May Week concerts, and performs both sacred and secular music at some of the College's formal dinners. Such events allow the choir to broaden its repertoire constantly and although the choir's primary commitment is to its services in King's, it is always looking to extend its range of musical activities.
In March 2001, King's Voices went on tour for the first time, taking part in an exchange trip with the University Choir of Cologne. Since then the choir has visited one or more European city each year, including Venice, Florence, Bologna, Rome, Barcelona, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam and Copenhagen.
