On Saturday the 11th February Foden's Band provided accompanyment for eight previously short listed candidates at Media City, Salford

Lewis Bettles - Trombone
James Nash - Flugel Horn
Samuel Taber - Bass Trombone
Ross Dunne - Tenor Horn
Isobel Daws - Trombone
Siobhan Bates - Tenor Horn
Adam Neild - Cornet
Ellena Newton - Trombone

As predicated the standard was extremely high

The recordings of the soloists will now be assessed and the final four shortlisted candidates will be accompanyed by Foden's at the live final to be held at the RNCM on the 21st April and broadcast on Radio 2.

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
