Saturday 16th July, 20th Anniversary Concert
Well what a fabulous day that was. In the afternoon we had an instructional workshop and a masterclass taken by members of the Fodens Band. The beginner or learner player workshop was taken by Foden’s euphonium player Mark Bousie and the masterclass for the more senior, accomplished player was taken by Foden’s principle cornet player Mark Wilkinson.
Then in the evening the Fodens Band performed a concert in front of an enthusiastic audience. The band and their soloists treated us to a wide range of music played at the highest level.
One of the highlights of the night was the premier performance of an arrangement of Deep Harmony, which our band Uttoxeter had had specially arranged for them by Wes Kendrick.
