About the Poringland Singers:

The Poringland Singers, a mixed voice choir,  started on January 10th 1986 with about 25 members. Our  repertoire then included sacred works, some Gilbert and Sullivan and a carol service  at Christmas  in  the local school! Under the direction of several conductors the choir's repertoire developed with  performances in and around Norwich.

Our current musical director Ian Elliott joined us in January 2004. With presently over 60 members  (drawn from a wide area), we now have a broad repertoire which includes sacred works, popular  classics, contemporary songs and songs from the shows. We have performed in venues throughout the  county and have also travelled to Ireland and the Isle of Man to perform. Our repertoire also perfectly  suits weddings for which we are pleased to provide an ensemble

Having performed on local radio and television, members of the choir are pleased to have recently  performed on stage at Hylands House, Chelmsford and also in 2010 at Sandringham as a backing  ensemble for Russell Watson, and to have provided backing vocals on the soundtrack of the 2010  Christmas-themed Doctor Who audio drama entitled “Doctor Who: Relative Dimensions”
