The Choir : Sing While You Work Series 2

Monday 4 November 2013

Choirmaster Gareth Malone returns to create harmony in five of Britain’s biggest workplaces. As the contest to be crowned ‘best workplace choir’ begins, he sets to work with P&O Ferries, Birmingham City Council (where Gareth discovers a singing traffic warden), Sainsbury’s supermarkets, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and Citi Bank.

The contest culminates with a final at Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire, where the most beautiful choral singing has resonated for a thousand years. The three remaining choirs perform the world premier of a piece by composer Paul Mealor and lyricist Brendan Graham, backed by the Ely Cathedral Choir. It then falls to the three judges to decide who will be crowned best workplace choir.
