Norwich Community Choir - friendly choir for anyone who loves singing, no auditions

Formed in 2008, Norwich Community Choir promotes, through singing, a sense of well being and a feeling of belonging to the community. People come to our fun friendly choir simply because they love singing. There are no auditions and you don't need to read music.
 
If you want a polished choir this is not for you but if you want to have fun and create a beautiful sound then come and try us - your first two sessions are free. We sing music from around the world including gospel, spirituals, contemporary, sacred and secular. We perform regularly at charity and community events in Norfolk.
