Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society was founded in 1933 and the choir currently has a membership of around 100. Our repertoire is quite
varied but is made up mainly of large choral works by composers from the 17th through to the 21st century. The concerts performed in the last few years
have ranged from Bach's Mass in B Minor to Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. In 2014 we commissioned celebrated composer Patrick Hawes to write
Eventide (In Memoriam Edith Cavell) which we performed in Norwich Cathedral and Sheringham to commemorate the centenary of WW1. Each year the
choir puts on three concerts and also runs a 'Come and Sing' event in the early autumn. We practice on Monday evenings in term time, 7-8.45pm, in the
school hall at Sheringham High School. The choir welcomes singers of all voices and abilities without audition.

Joint Concert with North Norfolk Sinfonia a great success
Wed 29 Nov 2017
The audience are in!
About to begin!
Thank you for conducting another amazing concert - much fun had by all....................
Fantastic concert - thank you David and everyone!......................
Well done - a terrific concert...................................
These are just a few of the comments from members of the choir after the concert which was presented to a large and appreciative audience who, at times, were spellbound by the beautiful and emotional singing of the fabulous soprano soloist Lisa Cassidy who was beautifully supported by both Willian Falconer, tenor and Charli Andrews, mezzo-soprano. All three complemented each other particularly during the duets. David Ballard never lost concentration or control of the large forces during a long and demanding performance which brought out the best of both choir and orchestra. A great collaboration which enabled us to perform Mendelssohn's demanding Symphony No 2 here in north Norfolk - a first, perhaps?

A wonderful programme of 21st Century choral music celebrating the theme of Light. This may be a "modern" music concert but guaranteed to be highly melodic and no fear of dissonance! An evening of beautiful music with a line up of top class soloists.
