Solo Contest

AboutSAM 2733

Foden's Solo, Duet and Quartet Contest first took place in October 2011. Now an annual event, the competition attracts entries from far and wide including from other European countries. Thanks to support from various partners, including Besson Musical Instruments, prize winners have been given opportunities to travel abroad, recieving scholarships in order to compete elsewhere around the world.
