We are really pleased to announce the band have been awarded 2nd place in the 4th section for international contest ‘Fodens Band Online Whit Friday Championships 2021’.
With Covid-19 putting a pause on many brass band competitions and events over the last year, the Online Whit Friday Championship was a really exciting opportunity for the band to work towards a putting in a high quality performance.
The event was streamed online and 119 bands took part from 13 countries. 57 different marches were performed across the two days by bands from youth to Championship section. The variety of performances was brilliant to see and it was fantastic to see everyone come together for such a worthwhile event. Thank you to Foden’s Band for putting on such a fantastic event, we thoroughly enjoyed taking part and watching all the other fabulously creative entries.
The march CBBB chose to play was Punchinello. Each member of the band rehearsed individually and through online rehearsals organised by our Musical Director Saph.
The audio a visual recordings made at home were compiled by our talented Repiano player Nick Poole.
The hard work payed off and we are delighted to have been awarded 2nd place for our section.
