SCCS in concert St Peter's Church Sheringham

This "extra" concert has been added to our 2015-2016 programme so that we can introduce our new MD, Harry Castle. He is not entirely new to the Society - we were delighted that he was able to join us as a counter-tenor /alto for our last concert when we sang Richard Allain's Vespers Songs of the Sea. The fact that he works alongside Richard at Norwich School music department may have had something to do with it!

To celebrate its 175th Anniversary, the massed ranks of the Norwich Philharmonic are joined by eight outstanding soloists and several choirs from across Norfolk (including Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society) for a spectacular staging in the Norfolk Showground Arena of Mahler's epic and rarely-performed Symphony of a Thousand.

The Norfolk Showground Arena will be especially transformed into a huge concert hall to create a powerful musical experience that will live long in the memory.

The ‘Symphony of a Thousand’ is so-called because it is scored for a vast orchestra, multiple choirs, organ, off-stage band and 8 solo singers.  Indeed it is conceived on such a large scale that the Royal Norfolk Showground Arena is the only venue big enough to stage it, the first time an event of this kind has been held there. In addition to the musicians and singers of the Norwich Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, the concert will also involve other local orchestras, notably the Academy of St Thomas, and at least four other Norfolk choirs including Norfolk & Norwich Festival Chorus, Norwich Cathedral Choir, Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society, and Kings Lynn Festival Chorus.

This concert takes place as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2016.
