And so Gareth Malone's Great British Home Chorus was born – and every one of us can join.
'We have an incredibly rich tradition of community music-making in Britain, whether that be amateur choirs, youth orchestras or regional theatre companies,' says Gareth.
'We now find ourselves in unprecedented times, and while we will find that in the coming weeks the lights on concert halls and rehearsal rooms will go dark, this shouldn’t mean we have to stop making music altogether.'
Over the coming weeks, he is inviting us in our homes and in communities across the UK to take part in a great joint musical venture online. Click on the link to register and to get regular updates.
Gareth has a fantastic record for finding the music in even the most reluctant singer, as the newly released Military Wives film with Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan shows.
If crooning in the shower just isn't enough, join the Great British Home Chorus and sing your way out of isolation.
