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, at St
Andrew's Methodist Church, Cromer Road, Sheringham. The choir welcomes singers of all voices and abilities without audition.
