On Wednesday 29th May a 10 piece ensemble from Foden’s performed as part of the ‘Sandbach Concert Series.’

The Concert Series was conceived by harpist Lauren Scott and co-founded in 2010 with her husband, the composer and saxophonist Andy Scott. The ‘Series’ consists of eight monthly concerts per year with each event beginning with a Spotlight Concert that showcases a number of young musicians from local schools, before the main concert. An Art Exhibition is also held featuring local artists and a raffle raising money for charitable causes.

Prior to the concert the ensemble held a masterclass with the young musicians who were appearing in the Spotlight Concert (courtesy of the Love Music Trust) as well as performing a number of pieces with these musicians.

The capacity audience were treated to a programme of original music with arrangements made by Trombone player Nick Birch

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
