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, at St
Andrew's Methodist Church, Cromer Road, Sheringham. The choir welcomes singers of all voices and abilities without audition.

85th Anniversary Garden Party at Mannington Hall
Sun 10 Jun 2018
On Saturday 9 June, at the kind invitation of Lord and Lady Walpole, Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society celebrated it's 85th Anniversary with a Garden Party at Mannington Hall. Members and guests enjoyed a private visit to the Hall and gardens. As well as being given private tours of the Hall by our hosts everyone was able to explore the gardens and picnic in the grounds.
Towards the end of the afternoon everyone gathered in the Greedy Goose cafeteria to share a celebratory cake and toasts to the choir (having kept the choral music tradition thriving in north Norfolk for 85 years) and our hosts who have supported the choir so much during the many years that Lord Walpole has been President as he now retires from this role. The opportunity was taken to present Lord and Lady Walpole with a standard rose, aptly named Rhapsody in Blue, to add to the splendid collection in Mannington's celebrated rose garden.
