After a long enforced break, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society are delighted to announce their first concert performance in 2 years.
To coincide with the close of the COP 26 United Nations Climate Change Conference this will be a performance of Joseph Haydn's magnificent and ever-popular oratorio The Creation.
The concert will take place in Cromer Parish Church on Saturday 13 November at 7:00 pm.
The performance will be conducted by musical director, David Ballard with soloists Rebecca Kaznowski, soprano (Gabriel); Daniel Bartlette, tenor (Uriel) and Dhilan Gnanadurai, bass (Raphael).
Philip Adams will accompany on piano / organ.

The Creation dates from April 1798. It was inspired by Handel's Messiah and Israel in Egypt, which Haydn had heard while visiting England. In the 1790s Haydn made two extended concert tours to London. Returning from the second of those trips in 1795, he brought with him a libretto telling the Biblical Creation story as related in John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost. Haydn conducted the oratorio's premiere at Schwarzenberg Palace in Vienna.
