Since announcing details of the Foden's Composer Contest the band have been inundated  with application requests.
Speaking about the Contest Mark Wilkinson said 'To date we have received 63 application requests across the two age group sections. The contest follows on from our Education work with Youth players, hosting a conducting school with Allan Withington in July and to ensure we have catered for all areas of the banding make up we decided to run the composers contest. There are some great prizes on offer with the winning compositions being published, performed on the Allan Withington Conducting School, recorded on the bands next Patron Choice cd, performed at the 2015 RNCM festival of Brass, a performance of the work by the Foden's Youth Band  as well as cash prizes.'
The composers contest is open to over seas composers and the dead line to submit compositions is the 21st April.
The judging panel comprises Michael Fowles, Paul Hindmarsh, Dr Peter Meechan and Philip Sparke
