Gareth Malone OBE | NMP Live

Gareth Malone is a choirmaster and broadcaster who first appeared on TV in the three-part BBC documentary series The Choir in 2006. The series saw Gareth take on the challenge of bringing music into the lives of students who had never sung before and ultimately taking them to compete in the World Choir Games in China. To date this astoundingly successful series has won two BAFTA awards and two RTS awards.

Following on from the success of series two, The Choir: Boys Don't Sing, Gareth's third series The Choir: Unsung Town saw him attempt to unite the community of South Oxhey near Watford as a choir. After the warm reception and loyal following The Choir programming received, Gareth's next project took him to Glyndebourne in a hunt for fresh talent to perform in the new opera, Knight Crew, and on to explore how boys are educated in Gareth Malone's Extraordinary School For Boys and building children's confidence in The Big Performance.

The fourth series of The Choir aired in November 2011. In his most emotional challenge to date, The Choir: Military Wives, saw Gareth give a voice to the wives and girlfriends left behind at the Chivenor and Plymouth barracks when troops were deployed to Afghanistan. The hit single from the series, 'Wherever You Are', was a resounding success, making Christmas number one in 2011, and the choir's album 'In My Dreams' went to number one in March 2012. A second album, 'Stronger Together' was released in November 2012.

Gareth's following series, The Choir: Sing While You Work, saw Gareth infiltrate the work place to get four large UK companies singing as choirs, and first aired on BBC2 in September 2012.

Gareth studied singing as a postgraduate at the Royal Academy of Music with Janice Chapman and Jonathan Papp. His first book Music for the People: A Journey through the Pleasures and Pitfalls of Classical Music was published in April 2011, and Choir: Gareth Malone was published in September 2012.
