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.
News and notices
Tue 10 Jan 2017
Following on from the hugely well received concert In Every Corner Sing (with the brillant baritone Dhilan Gnanadurai and charming string orchestra led by Keith Hobday) members of the choir relaxed by carol singing at Kelling Heath for an East Anglian Air Ambulance fund raising event.
Christmas is the time for giving and we are delighted to report that SCCS has received two very generous donations of £100 each from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society and Cromer and Sheringham Crab and Lobster Festival respectively.
These monies will be used to defray the overhead expenses of the Society's fund-raising venture on Saturday 18 February at 7.30 pm when, for one night only, St Peter's Parish Church Sheringham will be converted into a silent movie cinema. Our very own Anthony Gowing will take to the organ keyboard to accompany the 1925 full length silent movie version of Phantom of the Opera starring Lon Chaney. All welcome - free entry - posh refreshments available - retiring collection for choral society funds.
Phantom of the Opera (1925) Silent Movie Screening
Phantom of the Opera Live Organ Accompaniment by Anthony Gowing
Saturday 18 February 2017, 7.30 pm
St Peters Parish Church, Sheringham
Anthony Gowing - Organist
In order to raise much needed funds for the Society our accompanist Anthony Gowing will be playing live organ accompaniment to the full length 1925 silent movie Phantom of the Opera starring Lon Chaney.
Anthony has a passion for accompanying silent movies and this will be a great opportunity for Sheringham and north Norfolk to "do something different" on what may well be a cold winter night at the end of February half-term.
Do please come and support us and enjoy the evening.
No prior booking needed - FREE entry on the night - retiring collection (recommended minimum donation £8)
St Peter's Posh refreshments will be available
