The Foden's Youth Band performed the leading role in a special 'celebration concert' hosted by our partners Love Music Trust. 

The Trust are the leaders of the Cheshire East Music Hub and organise an annual School Music Competition. The concert, held at Hanley's Victoria Hall, featured two winning primary and two winning secondary schools. Foden's Youth Band performed several new items for brass band including an English premiere of Andrew Stevenson's 'Runaway Train' and 'Momentum by Ben Holllings. There were also Brass Band classics such as the Foden signature march 'The Cossack' and film music 'The Cirlce of Life' and 'Batman The Movie'. There was a stunning performance of 'Children of Sanchez' by our guest soloist, Helen Williams.

Worth noting, is the extreme lengths that some of the young players go to in order to be part of Foden's Youth Band; players travelling from as far north as Cumbria and as far south as Birmingham.

Next for our Youth Band is a performance alongside Foden's Band which will feature a world premiere of a new composition by Andrew Stevenson featuring both bands. Details to be released shortly.

Foden's Youth Band would like to thank Love Music Trust for inviting us to perform at such a prestigeous concert, and to our part

ners Besson Music Instruments who provide annual support which enables the world class opportunities we can offer young musicians.  



For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
