Free singing workshop in Sheringham planned

Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society will be holding a free singing workshop on Saturday, October 13 to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Participants will have the opportunity to sing a selection of patriotic British music from the 20th Century during the come and sing day at St Andrew's Methodist Church, Cromer Road, Sheringham.

The event, which is supported by Norfolk Community Foundation and Norfolk County Council Year of Celebration 2012 Fund, begins with registration at 10am. It concludes with an informal concert performance at 5.30pm, which friends and family are welcome to attend.

The workshop will be led by Nathan Waring and Lawrence Tao. The music being performed will include Parry's 'I was glad', Rutter's 'Clap Your Hands', Walton's 'Coronation Anthem' and Antiphon by Vaughan Williams.

Organisers hope there will also be a chance to sing Jubilate! Jubilee!, which is a new piece by Paul Mealor, written especially to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.

Society chairman Bob Cumber said everyone was welcome to attend, from experienced singers to novices. He added: 'Following on from our hugely successful sell-out concert in July, we are keen to bring this event to the attention of as many people as possible so that they can have the opportunity to come along to a celebration of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee and enjoy a whole day singing inspiring patriotic music without charge.

'Nathan Waring and Lawrence Tao are outstanding musicians and have a strong following in the north Norfolk area and on the regional and national scene and we are most fortunate to have the benefit of their skills and enthusiasm at Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society.'
