Foden’s are delighted to be back at Warrington’s Parr Hall following last year’s successful event. Once again we are thrilled that Accent Music Education Hub has given us the opportunity to put over 100 members of the Foden’s Band family on stage together. From the youngest members of the Foden’s Junior Band, through the talented Youth Band members to the world famous musicianship of Foden’s Band, this will certainly be an afternoon to remember – Ian Raisbeck
The afternoon performance takes place on Sunday 11th June 2017 2pm at Warrington’s Parr Hall and is set to be a memorable concert with each of the bands performing their own sets before joining together for a massed celebration of the talent on show.
With over 100 years of musical excellence, Foden’s Band remain one of the world’s leading brass bands. They have been 12 times British Open Champion and 13 times National Champion, most recently winning both titles in 2012. Foden’s will also showcase some of their start soloists, many of whom are regarded as leading exponents on their instruments.
Foden’s Youth Band was formed in 2012 as a natural extension to the youth development work carried out by the band members. Meeting monthly, the band gives young brass & percussion players opportunities to receive expert guidance, perform challenging repertoire and perform at prestigious venues. They have performed at the RNCM Festival of Brass twice, at Manchester Cathedral with international Trumpet Soloist Jens Lindemann and recently recorded 4 tracks for the ‘Patrons Choice IX’ CD which has been released by Foden’s Band to critical acclaim.
With an established Youth Band, Accent approached Foden’s in 2015 to propose a new Foden’s Junior Band. Meeting monthly in Warrington, the new ensemble has enabled younger musicians from the Warrington area, and further afield, to experience the same expert guidance provided at Youth Band level by Foden’s team of experienced performers, tutors & conductors.
