Foden's Band in Concert with Dobcross Youth Band - May 2013
As a result of the generous sponsorship from Norman Hirst, a dear friend of the late Gerald Frost, we are delighted to be able to host the Championship Foden's Band in concert in May 2013.
Foden's Band is currently the British National Champions 2012 and the British Open Champions 2012.
The Youth Band is going to enjoy a full day with the champions. They will have a workshop with leading members of the band, followed by a concert at Uppermill Civic Hall. Our youngsters can't wait to share the same concert platform as this famous band.
Some of our band members were lucky enough to get close to the Foden's trophies when they took part in a Quartet Contest held a few weeks ago by Foden's. The Dobcross Quartet came a very creditable 2nd out of an impressive field of 7. The winning quartet came from Belgium! Look out for news in the New Year about how to get a tickets; we know this will be a sell-out concert.
