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.

This year, North Norfolk is again hosting Orchestras Live North Norfolk, a series of the highest quality orchestral concerts developed by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) in partnership with Orchestras Live and community organisations.
Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society are delighted to have once again been invited to participate. This year we are very excited to be joining forces with the London Mozart Players to perform in Cromer Parish Church on Saturday 28 November. We are also pleased to announce that we will be performing the Norfolk premiere of Richard Allain's Vespers which was originally commissioned by Southend Festival Chorus. The composer is re-orchestrating the work especially for the London Mozart Players who will accompany the Choral Society who will be joined by a children's choir and popular Norfolk soprano Rosamund Walton.

Thr 7 May 2015
At the end of this season we sadly say goodbye to our current Rehearsal Accompanist Lawrence Tao who will be much missed at our weekly Rehearsals. However, the good news is that he will still be available as a concert organist - he has already been booked for our November concert with the London Mozart Players. Make a note in your diary now: Saturday 28 November 7.30pm Cromer Parish Church when we perform the Norfolk premiere of local composer Richard Allain's Vespers.
This means that we are now actively seeking a replacement Rehearsal Accompanist to commence in September 2015. Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org

SCCS in Rehearsal
"On the eve of Holy Week Nathan Waring led the Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society in a cleverly conceived musical homage to Lent." So begins Austin Stephens review in today's Eastern Daily Press.
............performance of Stainer's Crucifixion in Waring's capable hands was both elegant and dramatically moving
......soloists Paul Smy with gorgeous honeyed tone, and Tom Stoddart were engaging and authoritative
.......Waring's A Lenten Prayer written for this choir, who delighted in giving the piece its world premiere performance, (an) attractive lyrical work ........central section a tenor and bass duet is particularly beautiful and the whole piece will surely become widely performed
.......a thoroughly enjoyable concert
