The RNCM and Foden's Band are pleased to announce a new partnership offering exciting opportunities for RNCM brass students, composers and conductors.
Speaking on behalf of Foden’s, Chairman John Barber said: 'All at Foden's are very proud and privileged to be associated with one of the world’s leading conservatoires, especially as a number of our players are either ex or current members of this institution. We are looking forward to a long relationship with the RNCM and have already discussed a number of exciting projects that will be reported on in due course.'
Professor John Miller, Deputy Head of the School of Wind, Brass and Percussion, added: ‘The RNCM is thrilled about this new partnership with Foden’s, and looks forward to the great possibilities for students over the next three years. This presents an amazing opportunity for RNCM brass players, composers and conductors to collaborate with a professional brass band and in particular, to explore contemporary music, which is a strong feature of our annual RNCM Festival of Brass.’
Foden’s Band will be appearing live on BBC 1’s Look North West on Friday 21 December at 6.30pm. It, together with Foden’s Youth Band, will also be performing during the RNCM’s Festival of Brass weekend, which takes place between Friday 25 January and Sunday 27 January.
