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 practice on Monday evenings in term time, 7.20-9pm, in the school hall at Sheringham High School. The choir welcomes singers of all voices and abilities without audition.

Ellie Oldfield in concert with Sheringham & Cromer Choral Society

Our summer Americana Gala concert focused on an all American programme. According to the review in today's EDP "the choir displayed a nice range of vocal flexibility and rythmic agility" well supported by the orchestra and soloists Daniel Bartlette whose "voice was perfectly suited to Gershwin" and Ellie Oldfield who "sang elegantly with clear tone and good control". The sun shone for the picnic interval adding the icing to a most enjoyable evening.
