Hi, I'm Gareth Malone - welcome to my website. You'll find lots of advice about singing and choirs, as well as information about my programmes and a few photographs. Do please get in touch to let me know what you think!
The search is on for the most talented young singers in the UK.
I want to create a new and revolutionary choir, different from any other choir that has gone before, and I'm looking for young singers aged 18-25.
My mission is to create a ground-breaking singing group - celebrating the amazing talent in our country - and initiate a new choral style that is fresh, modern and utterly unique. We hope to inspire a whole generation by developing a completely new style and sound-world for choirs.
Regardless of background, if you have the voice and the vision, I want you.
I'm working with renowned producer David Kosten (Everything Everything /Bat for Lashes/Guillemots). We plan to record an album for release later this year which will tread uncharted territory by mixing lush, choral textures with innovative and contemporary recording techniques.
This book is about the past seven years of my life - making the TV series The Choir, going behind the scenes to share with you the amazing experiences of working with so many groups of memorable people, including the Military Wives, the school boys, and all the great people who made the programme and the choirs happen. It's packed with personal stories and inspirational moments - a few tears, many triumphs, and above all the way we all discovered how singing transforms people's lives.
It's an honour to be invovled with the Military Wives and this award is a fitting recogntion of their wonderful achievement in making it to Number One last Christmas. You can watch the ceremony this Sunday, 7th October at 10:20pm on ITV1 and see us perform alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow at the Royal Albert Hall, or catch up next week with the ITV Player.
