Hi Charlie, We have a facebook group you can join, or there's a page for you to like if you search for UK South Norfolk Youth Symphonic Band. I'm in the process of getting admin permissions so it will be up to date soon. Thanks for visiting the website!
I played with the SNYSB for 6 years from 1977. I started off able only to play the last note in most pieces, and ended up as a relatively competent flautist. It provided me with a fantastic musical education and I'm so glad to see it's still going strong after nearly 40 years, and is still open to all young musicians, of any ability. Truly an inspiring musical project. Thank you!
I HAVE SO MUCH FUN DURING THE WORKSHOP!!!!!
I LEARN SO MUCH THING ABOUT MUSIC DURING THE WORKSHOP~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I AND MY BAND WISH ALL OF YOU GUY FROM SNYSB WILL COME TO SABAH AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MY BAND AND I WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MUSIC~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To all members of SNYSB who were involved in the 31 Mach/01 April 12 weekend with the REME Band thank you very much. We very much enjoyed the weekend. You are a talented, professional and, most of all, fun group that should be very proud of what was achieved with some very difficult music on the concert.
I hope to see some of you join our very happy army music family but also hope to be invited to stand in front of you again in the near future.
A Big Hello from ROTARY CLUB OF KUCHING CENTRAL, DISTRICT 3310.We are looking forward to your coming to Kuching.I hope that all of you will be successful in your fund raising efforts and your trip will be a reality.

I was humming a piece of music this morning and suddenly realised it was one of the Four Norfolk Dances we used to do at SNYSB (I can't remember which one, possibly the Diss Dance, but it was in 3/4 and ended on a pretty isolated joint note on bassoon and contrabass clarinet, which was me. I recall Jane and I working on the timing for ages) I'd not heard it for years but I remembered the whole tune right through. So I thought I'd look you up! How brilliant to see you're still going strong, planning more trips abroad and that Mike is still badgering away at you all. Some things never change! After a brief break during university, music is still fun and I'm still playing my clarinet, now age 23 and in a wind band up here in Leicestershire, and remembering SNYSB fondly. That band was such a big influence on me; I still have the sticker displayed proudly on my clarinet case and it's not coming off anytime soon! It would be great to come back and see you next time I visit home. All the best to everyone, old members and new.
