Congratulations, Dr Bird!

Congratulations to Downshire's Dave Bird who has just received a doctorate in composition from Queen's University.  Dave's PhD, a portfolio and thesis, explores experimental compositional practices and was completed at the Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queen's. 

Dave has been a key player in the Downshire cornet line-up for the last few years as well as a tutor at the Newtownbreda Brass Academy and with JAM.  

Congratulations, Dr Dave, from everyone in Downshire Brass!
