Fodens entertain in France

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 2 May 2011

Foden's have just returned from a weekend in France where they have been performing in the Limoux Festival. The festival has been running for 3 years and this year attracted over 10,000 spectators to various events and shows over the 5 day duration.
Foden's were the headline act of the festival performing on Saturday night to a sell out audience of over 1000 people. The band conductor by Musical Director Mike Fowles featured a varied programme including solos from Mark Wilkinson, Glyn Williams and Mark Landon as well as receiving 3 standing ovations during the programme

On Sunday Fodens watched German Brass in the Festival before flying back to England where they met and had pictures taken with players from the Lyon Football team who were in the airport.


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
