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, 7-8.45pm, in the school hall at Sheringham High School. The choir welcomes singers of all voices and abilities without audition.

Coloratura soprano Lisa Cassidy to perform with choir

Preparations are now well advanced for Sheringham and Cromer Choral's next concert when we join forces with North Norfolk Sinfonia (leader Keith Hobday) to perform Felix Mendelssohn's Symphony No 2 (Lobgesang) Hymn of Praise. This is a slightly unusual choral work in that the first movement is entirely orchestral which allows our friends in the orchestra to "have their heads" before the choir joins in. We are delighted to welcome three fine soloists: the renowned coloratura soprano Lisa Cassidy, tenor William Falconer and mezzo-soprano Charli Andrews. 

The work will be sung in english alongside two other beautiful songs of praise - Regina Coeli by Mozart and Te Deum in C by Haydn.
