New Partner at Fodens

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 5 April 2013


Fodens Band is proud to announce a new partner to its organisation, Bergerault, the french percussion manufacturer.

Mark Landon, Fodens principal percussionist comments "Bergerault have provided several instruments to the band over the past 12 months and the quality and sound is exactly what we we are looking at Fodens. We have received excellent service from Bergerault's distributor Jean Paul Ratajczak of Muremo and now the partnership has developed where Bergerault and Muremo will be involved at this years Fodens Solo Contest in November".

Andy Rolfe mentions, "The Solo Contest on 2nd November will feature tuned and un-classes and an ensemble class in addition to the successful brass classes already in place. This years contest will build upon the past two years and will also see some new and exciting prizes to the lucky winners. We can't say anymore at the moment but watch out for further news."

Jean Paul from Muremo comments "on behalf of Muremo, the Bergerault range of instruments are perfectly suited to the best brass bands and especially the Double Champions Fodens. There are many synergies with both organisations and we hope this will be a long and mutually beneficial partnership. We are also delighted to be involved with the 3rd Fodens Solo Contest where we will be the main sponsors of the new percussion classes".

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
