PlayAlong with Foden's

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 29 March 2021


Foden's have announced the release of a 'free' resource entitled 'PlayAlong with Foden's' which gives players the opportunity to be accompanied 'virtually' by band members.

Speaking about the project Mark Wilkinson commented 'We are extremely pleased to release our latest project, which we hope will provide motivation for players as a return to band approaches, it also serves as a great educational resource for teachers and students. Our in-house team of Jonny Bates, John Barber, Ian Raisbeck, Nick Birch and Iain McKnight have produced fifteen new arrangements / compositions with flexible solo parts in C, Bb, Eb and F. The commissions cover a wide range of styles and are great fun to play! Richard Poole has once again provided the expertise to ensure that performers can be accompanied in their own homes by Principal players from Foden's. We would like to thank Arts Council England for supporting our release which we believe is the first project of its kind in this specific format.'

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
