“I'm thrilled and honoured to be a Patron of the London A Cappella Festival. I have been attending this event over the last few years and am hugely inspired by the quality and ambition of work on display. It's great to be working again with The Swingles who lead the way and are able to bring so many extraordinary voices together for this excellent festival. I can't wait!” Gareth Malone
