Two members of the Field Band Foundation (FBF), Gontse Motlhabane from the Investec Alexandra Field Band and Letlhogonolo Modisane from the Setlabotjha Field Band, recently left for the USA to take part in the multi-city tour of that country’s top class Pioneer Drum &and Bugle Corps. The Corps is a longstanding partner of the FBF.
This comes after Gontse and Letlhogonolo showed outstanding musical abilities, along with their initiative and determination to participate fully in Foundation activities.
Since 2001, more than 53 FBF members have gone to the US in this programme.
Our FBF members are kindly hosted by Pioneers Corps director Roman Blenski and his family while they acclimatise to the country, foods, and cultural habits, before starting rehearsals.
