Fodens tutor in Wales

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 30 September 2009

Members of Fodens Band are to host a Brass Band Workshop at Coleg Meirion Dwyfor, Dolgellau, Gwynedd, Wales on Saturday 3rd October.

Annual event

After a highly successful workshop last year it was demanded by the local brass band enthusiasts that this must become an annual event. Over 70 players aged from as young as 8 years old to old age pensioners attended from all parts of Mid & North Wales.


Attendees at the workshop will not only have the chance to be tutored by some of the talented members of Fodens led by Glyn Williams who himself hails from the local area, but will also have the opportunity to join forces on stage with Fodens that evening in a concert also to be held at the College.

Free workshop

The afternoon workshop is free of charge to all evening concert ticket holders (£10 for adults and £5 for under 16’s).

Tickets for concert including booking a place on the workshop can be obtained by contacting Llewela Williams on 01654710498 or Linda Williams on 01654712012 .


Registration will begin at 1pm and the workshop will commence promptly at 2pm and conclude at 5pm on Saturday afternoon 3rd October.

Light refreshments will be provided but you will need to bring your own music stand. The concert will begin at 7.30pm.

Foden's band maintains a world class reputation for providing entertainment in the field of brass music with a tradition and unique style Mark Wilkinson
