Gareth's choir journey

The next few months see a number of books published in which Philip has been involved. First up: on Thursday 13th September Collins are publishing Gareth Malone: Choir. Through his TV series The Choir, the Military Wives 2011 Christmas Number One and his contribution to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations – all recognised in the summer with an OBE – Gareth has become much admired and highly respected. This is his memoir of a period in which he transformed the lives of thousands but also gained a lifetime’s worth of experience in human frailty and strength. Written with real joy, emotion and amusement, the twenty chapters each deal with an individual moment – both break-throughs and disasters – or an individual character that has contributed to this extraordinary adventure. Philip helped Gareth create the text for the book during the first half of this year: it was a genuine pleasure to work with him on the project. NB The first programme in Gareth’s new TV series, Sing While You Work, which he has described as a kind of cross between The Choir and The Great British Bake Off, airs on BBC2 on 20th September, 9pm.
