TOMORROW (Saturday evening), St Paul’s Cathedral in Dundee is the venue for the first Christmas concert to be presented by the British and Scottish Youth Brass Band champions, Carnoustie and District.

The band members are looking forward to performing to a local audience and on the evening will be joined by the Barnhill Primary School choir and string quartet and also the Dundee Section of the National Youth Choir of Scotland. The concert starts at 7.30 p.m.

The evening is being hosted by the Rotary Club of Abertay who are very excited to be working with the very talented local youth musicians.

Tickets are selling fast but the few that are left can be purchased at the Box Office in Dundee City Square, MacDougall’s Newsagent in High Street, Carnoustie, and McDonalds Newsagent in Brook Street, Broughty Ferry. Any left over tickets will be on sale at the door.

Bryan Knight, the chair of the organising committee for the band, said: “This is a great opportunity to hear the best youth brass band in the United Kingdom playing and we are looking to pack out St Paul’s Cathedral and have a wonderful evening.

“The audience will not be disappointed and will be treated to a mixture of festive pieces, the band’s championship winning performance pieces and singing along to carols played by the brass band.”

Entry is £10 for adults, £5 for school pupils and £25 for a family ticket.
