Singing in a choir with Gareth Malone?

Can you sing?  Could we form our own MHWI choir?   Like to meet Gareth Malone?  Be on TV?

The BBC are planning a new series of groups singing and this year they are planning to represent the full range of musical styles and genres.  They’re happy to be approached by those who have yet to establish or become part of a group of their own.  So, if you are interested or think you could lead on forming a MHWI choir, email: or speak to Clare or a committee member at the March meeting.  We have until 15 April to apply.  More details:  BBAC Flyer

If you are keen, then below is a bit more from the producing company’s email (Twenty Twenty):

‘We’re looking for creative, dynamic and unique groups and people, from across the U.K., of all different shapes and sizes, from all walks of life, who are willing (with Gareth’s help) to push their vocal abilities, meet their full potential, and become the best they can possibly be.

‘Over the course of the series, groups will be allocated contact time with Gareth, who will offer his own expert and enthusiastic guidance, advice and encouragement.  To round off the series, the groups will showcase what they’ve learned, in front of a panel of musical experts.  Impress this panel and you could see your group rewarded with the honorary title of Britain’s best amateur choir. This is going to be a warm, inspiring series, where the singing groups’ musical talent needs to be matched by their heart and enthusiasm, as well as their ability to be creative, inventive and celebrate their love of music and singing.’
