Death of Arthur Breeze

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 26 April 2011

The death has occurred of Arthur Breeze, at the age of 71.  He joined Fodens on second trombone in the late 1970s at a time when James Scott was rebuilding the band.

After ending his banding career, he continued playing in amateur orchestras.  His son John has played with Fodens and Leyland and is now with Pemberton Old.

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
