Fodens at the North West Area Contest

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 27 February 2012

On Sunday the 26th February Fodens competed against 11 top section bands in the North West Area Brass Band Contest (which acts as a qualification for the National Finals which are held each year at the Royal Albert Hall London in October)

Fodens were defending their 6 year unbeaten record but after giving a good performance of the set test piece 'Devil in the Deep Blue Sea' the adjudicator Jim Davies placed the band 3rd behind Leyland and Faireys

Fodens along with Leyland and Faireys will represent the North West Area at the National Finals 

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
