Fresh from their first performance at RNCM Festival of Brass the Foden's Youth Band are delighted to announce a number of new supporters who have been helping the band to blossom.
The FYB members were recently presented with an individual copy of the bands first ever official photograph courtesy of Ian Clowes at Goldy Solutions. Ian works extensively with Foden's providing publicity shots of the band and has now extended this work to include the youth band.
Meanwhile, during their performance at the recent RNCM Festival of Brass; Paul Riggott of Sterling Instruments presented FYB with a cheque for £500. This will enable the band to continue in it's aims of engaging world class soloists and commissioning new pieces from aspiring young composers. Sterling are also a company who already work with Foden's players in developing their range of instruments and are now actively supporting our youth initiative.
Project Co-ordinator Ian Raisbeck said 'We are delighted with the support the Youth Band has received and the generosity that companies such as Goldy and Sterling have offered, it is enabling us to offer the kind of opportunities we set out to provide'.
