Foden's Youth and Junior Bands are now recruting

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 16 September 2019


Foden’s Band are delighted to announce that registration is now open for this year’s Foden’s Youth Band and Foden’s Junior Band.

The Youth Band, now entering their 8th season, welcomes players from across the North West, Midlands, North Wales and Yorkshire to monthly rehearsals led by Foden’s team of experienced conductors and tutors. Players aged 21 or under, and grade 5 or above, are welcome to apply to the band and previous members of FYB now study at the UKs leading conservatoires and hold seats in many of the top bands in the country.

Foden’s Junior Band formed in 2015 to give players of grade 2-5 standard the opportunity to gain the same kind of monthly experiences that the youth band enjoy. Directed by Anna Hughes-Williams, the band has gone from strength to strength since formation and thanks to partnerships with Accent Music Hub Warrington, is provided free of charge.

Once again, we will be working in partnership with the Royal Northern College of Music who will be sending 3rd year students to shadow Foden’s Band tutors as part of their studies. This partnership has proved highly inspirational for the young musicians in the band.

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
