Foden's are pleased to announce that they have been awarded funding to commission a new work by the PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music Biennial. The highly prestigious and high profile scheme will present a series of commissioned works from British composers across the UK in 2014, as Scotland prepares to celebrate the Commonwealth Games.
To keep ‘up to date’ and make use of social network sites ‘Foden’s Youth’, as we call ourselves, have also become regular posters on sites such as ‘Twitter’ and ‘Facebook’ and now have our own very popular pages! Through these sites we hope to encourage many more youngsters to follow Foden's Band and the Youth Patrons.
The web page has some great articles, photographs, competitions, a shop, ‘tips from the top’, and many other exciting features. To ensure we constantly produce what the youngsters want to see, we have even formed a ‘working party’ made up of Young patrons themselves. The first Working Party, held very recently, had the fun task of approving a new logo for the Youth side of things. The logo was designed by one of Foden’s Bands partners Wright’s printers from Sandbach.
