- Vocal Ensemble
The Scholars' sparkling performances, often enlivened by humorous commentary, are acclaimed by critics and audiences alike. The name "Scholars" derives from the fact that the original members of the group all won scholarships to Cambridge University to sing in the famous choir of King's College Chapel.
Thus The Scholars began as an all-male ensemble, but as early as 1972 the group changed to include a female voice, adding a new dimension to both sound and repertoire. Robin Doveton is a founding member and Kym Amps, Angus Davidson and Simon Grant joined the group in 1983, 1986 and 2004 respectively.
