Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 8 November 2010

Foden's have had a busy weekend recording their latest cd 'Patrons Choice 4' at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester on the 6/7 November. The cd will comprise of tracks chosen by the bands 'Patron's' and will be released at the Bands 'Patrons Concert' in February 2011.

The idea of recording an annual 'Patrons Cd' was to thank our 'Patrons' for their continued support since the 'Patrons Society'  was established over 20 years ago. The 'Patrons' numbers continue to rise and now  exceed 600 members who receive two colour newsletters per year, 2 x tickets for the bands annual 'Patrons Concert' as well as discounts on merchandise etc. Details how to become a 'Patron' of the band can be found on the bands website

After recording the cd on the 7th November the band travelled to Hanley where they performed their annual concert at the Victoria Hall with opera star 'Denise Leigh.' During the concert the editor of the 'British Bandsman Magazine' Kenneth Crookson presented conductor Mike Fowles with the 'British Bandman cd of the year award for 2009' for the cd release 'Maestro' conducted by Bram Tovey which also won the '4barsrest' and 'Brass Band World' cd of the year for 2009. The cd is available to purchase via the bands website.
