Gareth Malone OBE

Gareth Malone (OBE) has changed the face of choirs through his popular television series, sell-out concert tours and charity singles.

First appearing on British television screens on The Choir in 2006, Gareth embarked on the ultimate challenge–, taking students who had no prior singing experience to China to compete in the World Choir Games.

With the show’s success, Gareth introduced a new version of the show – The Choir: Military Wives. The programmed documented Gareth’s emotional journey as he formed a choir of existing wives and girlfriends whose partner’s had been deployed to Afghanistan.

Gareth has helped galvanise the British choral scene through his award winning BBC series, concert tours and recordings.
Gareth is a fellow of the Royal Academy of Music where he studied with Janice Chapman and Jonathan Papp. He was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of East Anglia and Freedom of the City of London in 2010.

Audience member

Gareth Malone is pure talent and music and fun run through every vein in his body. It was varied and exciting and so lovely to hear him sing a lot more than you do on the television and what a beautiful voice.

Audience member

I saw his last two shows and he never disappoints has a cracking sense of humour on stage and also gets his audience to participate with him by getting fans up on stage to sing
I would heartly recommend Gareths concerts for a great night out, he is more than a choirmaster but an all round entertainer go see him for yourself.
