Foden's International Music Festival

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 15 April 2020


During the past two weeks Foden's have been running an online 'International Music Festival.' During this time we have had 33 videos uploaded to our facebook page covering a variety of styles from players across the World at different stages of their musical development.

These videos have been viewed 196,238 times

Speaking about the event Mark Wilkinson commented 'We would like to thank everyone who has supported our festival which was initially organised to keep players motivated during these difficult times.  The standard of the performances have been fantastic and we would like to thank everyone who has sent messages of encouragement to the performers. The only performances being adjudicated were the 18 and over slow melody category, as expected the standard was exceptionally high!

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
