Scholars of London
Since their professional debut in 1970, The Scholars of London have given at least 2,500 concerts in more than 50 countries, a record which can be rivaled by very few ensembles in the field of chamber music. 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 of London 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. David van Asch and Robin Doveton are both founding members while Kym Amps and Angus Davidson joined the group in 1983 and 1986 respectively.
