The South Norfolk Youth Symphonic Band ends its year with a Christmas Concert at Diss Corn Hall on Sunday. Starting at 7.30pm, it will be a mixture of traditional carols and music that the band has played during the year.

The band's year ends with fond memories of the trip to the Far East, but it is looking forward to a visit by a Dutch band in May and a return tour of Germany and Holland in 2010. During the past year the band has held many local concerts raising hundreds of pounds for good causes. It is also looking forward to the visit by the training band of the Royal Marines from Portsmouth at the Corn Hall in January.

Director of music Mike Booty said: “This year has been one of my best years. The tour to the Far East has been a life long dream and I would like to thank all of the band's friends and supporters for making this happen. I am amazed what our young musicians achieve, nothing seems to faze them and their behaviour has always been impeccable. Too often we hear about the bad things with today's youth. If people want inspiration come and celebrate our music making at the Christmas concert.”

Tickets for the concert, sponsored by Jackaman Smith & Mulley Solicitors, are available from the Diss Tourist Information Centre or from Mandy Carter on 01379 854600 and cost £7 (tiered seating) or £5 on the floor. Tickets may be available on the door, however, this event is popular and people are advised to buy them in advance. Further information on the South Norfolk Youth Symphonic Band is available from Phil Anderson on 01953 860370 or from the band's website www.snysb.org.uk
