Gareth Malone to create new-style British Youth Choir
24 April 2013
Gareth Malone has launched a UK-wide search for accomplished singers aged 18-25 to join a 'ground-breaking' new British youth choir with the aim of 'celebrating the amazing talent in our country' and initiating 'a new choral style that is fresh, modern and utterly unique. Our aim will be to inspire a whole generation. Regardless of background, if you have the voice and the vision, I want you,' he said in a launch statement on 23 April.
Speaking on Classic FM Malone added that his intention is to form a professional choir of young singers who are already highly accomplished and ready to tackle recording projects using contemporary recording techniques and exploring a range of repertoire including both classical and pop. Sight-reading skills would be important but if there are impressive singers who lack some of the relevant experience it may be possible to draw them in.
