Storyline

British choirmaster Gareth Malone believes that choral singing is a way to bring together people to work together toward common goals. As such, he travels across the United States looking for fractured community groups, organizations, and communities themselves that he feels need to be brought closer together for whatever reason. In one week's time with each of these, he will recruit people to join a choir, learn two choral arrangements of songs which features soloists from among the group, and perform those two songs to an audience. These groups may not on the surface be natural fits with choral singing, which may make the process that much more difficult for him. Through this process, Gareth not only wants to bring the people closer together, but also help certain individuals within the group who may be facing personal issues. Written by Huggo

I happened to come across "It Takes a Choir" during a holiday marathon, watched about three episodes in a row and LOVED this show! Gareth Malone is a choirmaster with intelligence, humor, charm and, obviously, a great deal of musical talent. When he takes on a rag-tag group of people who are shy, afraid of public appearances and feeling disconnected from others, he does MAGIC. Part psychologist, part cheerleader and always musical impresario, Gareth makes people come together and learn to believe in themselves and the power of community. Every time we get to see the culmination of his latest project, we want to stand up and cheer. I got goosebumps with nearly every episode.
