The Mundesley Singers were founded in 1982 when it was an all female choir. Since 2003,
men have been welcomed into the fold, adding tenor and bass voices to the already
existing first and second sopranos and altos and forming The Mundesley Community Choir as we are now known.
Our repertoire covers many genres including classical, church, popular, musical theatre and jazz pieces.
We regularly perform for events in and around the village and hold concerts over the summer and Christmas periods.
We rehearse between 7:30-9:30 on Monday evenings in Mundesley Village.
Our current fee is £40 per term, this includes the loan of sheet music.
You are very welcome to come along to a practice and give us a try. If you enjoy yourself, become a member.
Whilst we do use sheet music for most of our pieces, it is not essential that you can read music. We are keen to include all and will ensure that everyone is able to follow and join in with the singing.

Find out a little more about what it's like being a member of the choir.
from our current members
"I always come away from choir feeling brighter, any worries disappear while I'm singing. It's like mindfulness"
"I first came along to the choir having been to one of Zaira's concerts. I was looking for a choir at the time but the welcome from members, Zaira and Martin's warmth and the quality of the singing sealed the deal for me on the first rehearsal"
"The friendships I have made with fellow choir members, means so much to me"
"Being able to sing with this lovely, welcoming, group of people always raises my mood"
"We love coming along to sing such a wide variety of musical genres, from pop to classical, in the company of such a friendly group of people, some of whom read music and some who do not"
