The London A Cappella Festival has named choirmaster and broadcaster Gareth Malone OBE as its patron.
The choirmaster and animateur has been a supporter and regular attendee of the Festival for several years and has worked with many past and present festival performers, including festival co-hosts The Swingles, with whom he recently undertook a nationwide tour.
He said he was ‘thrilled and honoured’ to be appointed a patron, adding: ‘I have been attending this event over the last few years and am hugely inspired by the quality and ambition of work on display. I can’t wait!’
Malone will be in attendance at this year’s festival, which will take place 24 – 27 January at Kings Place and LSO St Luke’s.
