Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society has recently become a member of the newly formed Norfolk Music Library Friends. This group has been set up to to work alongside the Norfolk County Council Music Library Service which is currently under threat from continuing local authority cuts.
We are joining with other choirs, orchestras and music groups, together with our "umbrella" organisation Making Music, in the hope of ensuring that we will continue to be able to borrow vocal scores and orchestral sets at reasonable cost via the Norfolk Music Library Service which is facing the possibility of closure. This is a vital service for us and many other music makers in the county.
The NMLF are actively looking into both practical and financial ways of supporting the Library Service to ensure that its continuation is viable. You can follow their endeavours on their web site https://normuslibfriends.wordpress.com
There is an exciting fund raising initiative taking place next weekend. A 24 hour Piano Marathon is being held at St Peter Mancroft church Norwich from noon on Friday 18 November until noon on Saturday 19 November 2016. We are pleased to announce that our very own Accompanist Anthony Gowing is planning to take part. At rehearsal last Monday Ant told us that St Peter Mancroft holds a special place in his heart, as it does for our Musical Director David Ballard - they both learned to play the organ there.
Please join with us in sponsoring Anthony. Find a sponsorship form by clicking the button below. Cheques (payable to Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society) can be handed to any member of the choir in a sealed envelope clearly marked PIANO MARATHON or donations can be paid direct to the Society's bank account:
