Join the nation’s favourite choirmaster and his choir Voices for an all new show in 2015

‘‘A good time had by all'' The Daily Telegraph
Following a hugely successful nationwide tour in 2014 Gareth is excited to announce his second even bigger tour with his choir Voices.
Early in 2013 Gareth began a UK-wide hunt with Decca Records to find the country's most talented young singers to form a new youth choir. This culminated in Gareth Malone’s Voices, released 18th November 2013, his most personal album yet, embodying his vision of the future of choral music. Gareth and Voices 2015 tour follows an acclaimed 14-date UK tour earlier this year.
2014 has been another memorable year for Gareth Malone. This year Gareth was involved in two very different projects commemorating the centenary of World War One. The Big Performance for CBBC culminated with a performance at St Symphorien and Gareth conducted his first ever Prom with the Military Wives Choir alongside performers from War Horse. This will be shown in a two-part documentary on Tuesday 16th December on BBC2. Plus along with his All Star Choir, Gareth reached number one with this year’s Children in Need single ‘Wake Me Up’ which was documented in a two part series on BBC1.
Gareth Malone 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.
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. 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 also released the official Diamond Jubilee song Sing composed by Gary Barlow and performed by The Military Wives Choir.
Gareth’s next TV project, Sing While You Work, saw Gareth infiltrate the work place to get four large UK companies singing as choirs. Since beginning in 2006, all the successful series have led to seven BAFTA nominations, winning two successive BAFTA awards and two RTS awards.
