On Sunday 15th June Foden's held the finals of our '23 and under Composers Contest ' at the Royal Northern College of Music. A shortlist of 6 finalists were drawn up by 3 judges, Dr Peter Meechan, Philip Sparke and Miuchael Fowles. 

We are delighted to congratulate the winner David Hanson for his composition entitled 'Aurora Borealis'. The piece will be performed by Foden's Youth Band in a concert next year as well as later this year by Foden's at the Allan Withington Conducting Summer School.
