On Saturday 2nd May 'Team Foden's' (Foden's and Foden's Youth) performed at Keele University. Each band performed a solo spot before combining to perform a World Premiere from Andy Stevenson of 'Tales of Myths and Legends' which takes inspiration from Cheshire's rich mythological history. The piece is in four movements and lasts 30 minutes. Each movement tells a different tale from Cheshire's past, which boasts stories of dragons, wizards and mermaids. 
The piece received a great response from audience and playing members, well done Andy!!! 

All at Foden's are extremely proud of our Youth Band which boasts over 50 members who meet monthly and perform 4/5 concerts per year. The band was formed to compliment the excellent work already being carried out by several youth bands across the area by giving young players access to world class conductors, soloists and composers. Due to this we are delighted to have formed some great working relationships with a number of local youth bands and would like to thank them all for their continued support.
Saturday's event took place at Keele University, and was organised in conjunction with their university brass band lead by student Chairerson Clare Jakeman (a Tuba player with the Foden's Youth Band). The students at Keele did a magnificent job in hosting the event, and Foden's would like to place on record our thanks to them for the hard work they put in. It is hoped that this will be the first of many events in partnership with Keele University. 
Foden's band maintains a world class reputation for providing entertainment in the field of brass music with a tradition and unique style Mark Wilkinson
