Mundesley Community Choir
Our history
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.
Musical Director
Our Musical Director is Zaira Palumbo. Zaira is from Norfolk and is an Honours Graduate
of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. She has a classical background,
but also has a strong interest in musical theatre.
As well as being our Musical Director, she is the MD of the Broadland Youth Choir and the
Red Loft Theatre Company. When not doing all of that, she teaches singing!
Zaira is keen to introduce the Choir to a wide range of music and to expand our
repertoire. We may even take part in the 2020 Norfolk Music Festival as well as staging
our own concerts locally.
She is ably assisted on the piano by local professional musician, Sally Hart.
Join us
We are keen to recruit new members over the age of 18. We do not hold formal auditions,
although Zaira may want to hear you sing just to decide which section best suits, soprano,
alto, tenor or bass. These groups are not gender specific, we currently have a female
tenor!
We practice every Tuesday evening, from 7:30 to 9:30pm in the Methodist Church,
Mundesley, NR11 8BE. (entry through the rear door) We do have breaks, loosely based on
school holidays.
Our current fee is £20 per term. This includes the loan of sheet music and weekly
refreshments at rehearsals.
You are very welcome to come along to a practice and give us a try. If you enjoy yourself,
become a member.
Reading Music
Whilst we do use sheet music for most of our pieces, it is not essential that you can read
music. Zaira is keen to include all and will ensure that everyone is able to follow and join in
with the singing.
