Dartford Township Choir is delighted to present the results of its latest series of workshops led by the inspirational musical director Mike King and featuring members of the Mike King Collective vocal group.

DTC has worked with Mike King at the MJC since 2011 and we are delighted to welcome his return. He is one of the UK’s leading contemporary vocal coaches and choir leaders and as a musical director and arranger his musicianship, energy and enthusiasm are unrivalled. Mike has been involved in the music industry for over 20 years and has worked as a vocal coach on The Voice UK, helped smash a Guinness World Record by conducting 5,000 singers at Wembley Arena and directs choirs worldwide. He was a lecturer at Goldsmiths University of London for 12 years and was a guest vocal tutor at the University of East London and London Metropolitan University. He has worked with international artists including Angelique Kidjo, Ronson, Boy George, Lily Allen and Florence and the Machine. In addition to facilitating vocal workshops and masterclasses nationally and internationally he organises luxury singing holidays worldwide. Mike has also established a charitable foundation aimed at making a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities through music.

The Mike King Collective (MKC) is one of the UK's premier contemporary vocal groups. Its soulful vocals, rich harmonies and uplifting performances have inspired audiences across the UK. The MKC has recorded for the BBC, performed live on Channel 4, sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe, and worked with some of the music industry’s biggest names. It is committed to making a difference to local communities and supporting charities around the world and has raised money and performed at events for organisations such as Stand Up To Cancer, the Terrence Higgins Trust, Arms Around The Child, St. Christopher's Hospice and WaterAid.

For this performance, DTC and MKC will perform Mike King’s innovative arrangements of well-known contemporary songs made famous by some of the best artists in the business. They will be accompanied by the fabulous guitarist Damien Nolan, who has performed with artists including Pete Townsend and Sting and has played in venues and events including Wembley Stadium, the Royal Albert Hall and Glastonbury.
