Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society was founded in 1933 and is currently directed by David Ballard and accompanied by Philip Adams. In recent years the choir has worked with both the English Chamber Orchestra and London Mozart Players, has commissioned work by Patrick Hawes and Richard Allain and taken a key role in important community events including significant concerts to commemorate the centenary of the beginning and ending of World War One in 2014 and 2018. Our repertoire is quite varied including many of the larger choral works by composers from the 17th through to the 21st century as well as occasional smaller or lesser known pieces. Each year the choir performs three concerts in local venues and also runs a 'Come and Sing' event in the early autumn. We practise on Monday evenings in term time, 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm, at St Andrew's Methodist Church, Cromer Road, Sheringham. The choir welcomes singers of all voices and abilities without audition.

First Virtual Rehearsal Tonight!
Mon 27 Apr 2020
Courtesy of Zoom we are holding our very first virtual on-line rehearsal this evening. Our MD, David Ballard, has some splendid madrigals for us to get our tongues around later today. Although we havn't been rehearsing together for more than a month David has kept us on our toes with weekly You Tube coaching and music theory classes. It will be great to see (and hear?) everyone again albeit only by video link!

Fundraising Events - Open Garden and Raffle
Sun 01 Mar 2020
Chestnut Farm West Beckham
The Open Garden Event at Chestnut Farm West Beckham on Sunday 1 March was a great success. Notwithstanding a chilly breeze we enjoyed a fine sunny day and welcomed more than 200 visitors. Very many thanks to the kindness of John and Judy Mcneil-Wilson who opened their beautiful garden as part of the National Garden Scheme. All proceeds from light refreshment sales and other fund-raising activities on the day were donated to Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society.
Visitors to the garden enjoyed Spring bulbs including snowdrops, anemones and crocus as well as plants on sale from local nurseries and the delicious refreshments were much appreciated. Members of the choir helped staff the gate and refreshment area.
At the end of the day our Spring Raffle was drawn. All prizes have been claimed with the exception of Ticket 0716 (5th prize) - this prize should be claimed by 31st March 2020 by emailing email@example.com
