Music for Independence Day Garden Party

Saturday 4 July 2015, 2pm to 5pm

Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society

Nathan Waring Musical Director

Lawrence Tao  Accompanist

Geoff Cummings-Knight Pianist (incidental music)

At the kind invitation of Lord and Lady Walpole you are invited to join us for a Garden Party at Mannington Hall. This is a fund raising event for Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society a registered charity - please come and support us so that we may continue to perform wonderful choral music.

We are currently planning a highly exciting and innovative programme for 2015/2016. Unfortunately music making is quite an expensive undertaking, particularly when professional soloists and orchestras are involved. Many of the traditional sources of funding are no longer available to us and ticket income from concerts often only goes a small way to cover the costs involved. In particular the costs of hiring and /or purchasing  music scores is increasing rapidly partly as a consequence of funding cuts at the Norfolk Library Service. To ensure we rehearse weekly to a high standard all our members pay an annual subscription (currently £80).

Enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Mannington Gardens. Tea and cake will be provided. There will be music throughout the afternoon. The choir will sing on two occasions and there will be incidental piano music. In keeping with the date (Independence Day) the occasion will have a north American theme and, almost certainly, the choir will provide a taster of items from our forthcoming Gala Picnic concert at the Auden Theatre (Sunday 12 July)

We look forward to seeing you there. Ticket holders are requested to bring their own chairs.

Tickets £10 (children under 15 £5) ADVANCE SALES ONLY from the Box Office, Mannington Hall Norfolk NR11 7BB Telephone 01263 584175
