ABOUT THE KING'S COUNTERPOINT

The King’s Counterpoint is a unique professional vocal ensemble that specializes in the performance of sacred and secular music from the Middle Ages through the modern era, combining polyphony, literature, art and dialogue to create exceptional music presented within an historical context. Based in Charleston, South Carolina, KCP has as its primary mission the exploration of the variety and beauty found in a cappella vocal music: from chant to 20th-century, medieval carols to the avant-garde, The King's Counterpoint is committed to the creation of delightful programs designed to entertain, educate, and above all to stir the soul.
