Foden's renew Regent Hall appearance

Foden's to perform on eve of National Championships at Regent Hall — with a preview of the test-piece and a tribute to Philip Biggs to be heard.

Fodens
  Foden's will showcase 'Titan's Progress' as well as a work in tribute to Philip Biggs

The defending National Champion Foden's will showcase their preparations of the defence of their title at Regents Hall in London on the eve of the National Final.

The concert (Friday 11th October) continues the popular tradition that was supported by the late Philip Biggs, and will see Foden's take to the stage at 7.45pm where they will not only perform Herman Pallhuber's test-piece but will also play amongst other repertoire, 'St Clements', as a tribute to him.

Honoured

Band Manager Mark Wilkinson told 4BR: "We are honoured to be able to perform at the event and to pay our tribute to Philip with a piece that has been chosen by the family who will be there with us.

The Regent's Hall concert has always been a popular contest preview and we are delighted to take it on this year and make arrangements to carry it on over the next two years."
