Welcome

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.

Have a very happy memory of a concert with my school choir in Cromer Parish Church in the summer of 1974. Not in a million years would I have guessed then something like this by me would one day fill its arches: ETERNAL LIGHT: A REQUIEM on April 28th 🎶

Preparations well advanced for exciting concert
Sat 24 Feb 2018

Rehearsals are now well under way for our exciting Lux concert on Saturday 28 April when we shall be performing choral music on the theme of light.

Musical Director, David Ballard says "This might just be the project I’ve worked on as a musician that I’m most excited about. I don’t care if you like choral music or not - you need to come and listen. Great contemporary music, great soloists, and a choir who want to show you they love it. Be there."

David's enthusiasm is infectious and no wonder when you consider that the concert will feature a major work by Howard Goodall CBE who will be familar to many as the presenter of many television programmes with a musical theme and as the prodigious composer of musicals, choral music and a multitude of television theme music such as Blackadder, Mr Bean and, possibly, most popular The Vicar of Dibley.

Eternal Light: A Requiem was originally commissioned by Rambert Dance Company as a choral-orchestral-dance piece and has quickly earned a firm place in the choral repertoire.

Also on the programme are works by the widely performed American composer Morten Lauridsen, the Norwegian Ola Gjeilo and the Devon-based composer of sacred music Graham Keitch whose works are rapidly becoming popular and frequently performed by choirs and in cathedrals around the world.

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.
