A new community choir is clearing its throat for a festival concert, where it will perform unaccompanied songs from around the world.

About two dozen people have joined the Sounds Fantastic choir project, which has six weeks of rehearsals ahead of the concert in Overstrand church.

Choir director Teresa Verney said the group started from scratch and was open to everyone. They were tackling traditional a capella songs from a range of places around the globe from the Caribbean and America to Scotland and Wales.

“They are songs that are taught by ear rather than written and composed,” she added.

Interest in choirs had been boosted by the television shows involving Gareth Malone, said Ms Verney, who runs other singing groups in north Norfolk and Norwich.

“Nearly everyone can sing. Basically if you can talk you can sing,” she added.

The Sounds Fantastic concert is at 2pm at Overstrand Church on Saturday October 27, and is part of the Cromer and Sheirngham Arts festival which runs from October 27 to November 4. Tickets are £5 (£4 concessions) through Sheringham Little Theatre box office on 01263 822347.
