Gareth Malone

Choirmaster, Presenter of BBC TV series The Choir & Populariser of Choral Singing

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. In his most emotional challenge to date, The Choir: Military Wives, followed Gareth as he gave a voice to the wives and girlfriends left behind at the Chivenor and Plymouth barracks when troops were deployed to Afghanistan.

In 2009 Gareth conducted the first New Year's Eve Twitter Community Choir performance of Auld Lang Syne
