In May Foden’s Band secured a major award from Arts Council England through ‘Grants for the Arts’ for a “Three Year Strategic Music and Audience Development Plan 2016-2019”.

Over the course of the next 3 years Foden's will produce monthly videos to advertise forthcoming events including their annual solo contest in October, updates of various projects covered via the funding award, out reach educational work as well as Foden's Youth and Junior Band videos.

Foden's will also produce a series of videos entitled 'Tips from the Top' where Principal players will talk / demonstrate about various aspects of brass and percussion playing as well as videos on conducting and improvisation!

The first 'Tips from the Top' video is provided by Dr David Thornton on the subject of Warm-ups. All of the Top Tip videos as well as a large library of Foden's videos can be viewed on our Foden's TV Page

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
