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 practise 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

Join us to Sing North Norfolk!
Mon 9 Sep 2019
Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society are delighted to announce that, having received a generous grant from the North Norfolk District Council Arts & Culture Fund, our Sing North Norfolk! campaign is up and running. The aim of the project is to encourage as many local people as possible to discover the benefits of singing in a choir. To this end we have organised a free Come & Sing event in Sheringham on Saturday 12 October and a number of “open rehearsals” in future months so that people of any age or singing experience can come along and give singing a try. It is a well-known fact that singing has huge health benefits – both physically and mentally – as well as being tremendously enjoyable. The choir, which has a reputation for being friendly and inclusive, is particularly keen to get younger people involved and offers free membership to school children over the age of 16.
Rehearsals have just begun for our November concert. There is already lots of interest from people wanting to come along to sing wonderful choral music. Now is the time to come and join us with the opportunity to perform the East Anglian premiere of an exciting new work Requiem by Matthew Coleridge.
Come along at 7pm to St Andrews Methodist Church Sheringham to meet this friendly, fun and hard working choir - you will be most welcome.
