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 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 audition.

There was a lovely atmosphere for our Summer Concert in the Auden Theatre on Saturday 13 July for a most enjoyable concert.

Two superb soloists in Rebecca Kaznowski and Alex Bower-Brown delighted the audience for our performance of Brahms' German Requiem (Ein Deutsches Requiem). The choir gave of their all under the precise direction of conductor David Ballard, all superbly accompanied by our amazing pianists Michael Finnissy and Philip Adams - all 4 hands on the keyboard of the Auden's magnificent Steinway D grand piano.

The first half of the concert comprising Elgar's  From the Bavaraian Highlands was "top and tailed" with two Elgar Pieces for flute and piano (Chanson de Matin & Chanson de Nuit) with flautist Jodie Ballard.
