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.
