brass passFoden's were privileged to have been involved in the Brass Pass 'Young Brass Award Final' held on Sunday 31st March at the Stoller Hall, Manchester which was broadcast live across the World.

Over the past couple of weeks Foden's have been busy rehearsing accompaniments for solo's chosen by today's finalist who performed challenging repertoire to a large audience. The judges given the extremely difficult task of choosing a winner were Dr Robert Childs, trombone virtuoso Lito Fontana and Kate Moore, principal trumpet of the BBC Concert Orchestra.

The standard of performance from Tobias Reifer (euphonium), Peter McDonough (euphonium), Holly Clarke (trumpet) and Siobhan Bates (tenor horn) was fantastic!

Before the results were announced Foden's performed a short concert prior to Siobhan Bates being announced as this years winner.

Congratulations to Siobhan and a special thank you to Brass Pass for continuing with the concept of this contest which was originally run by the BBC.

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
