About Me

Andrew Couperthwaite - Soprano Cornet

Bio:

Andrew grew up in Battleford, Saskatchewan, learning Cornet at the age of 6 with the Salvation Army Brass Band of North Battleford.  Since that time he has learned several additional instruments including; Trumpet, Soprano Cornet, Eb Horn, and Trombone. He has played in many bands in his musical career including; Salvation Army Brass Band North Battleford, Salvation Army Brass Band Saskatoon, Saskatoon Jazz Society Junior Jazz, Saskatoon Jazz Society Big Band and for the last several years with the Bridge City Brass Band.

Andrew has recently finished his Master's of Science (Computer Science) degree majoring in Bioinformatics at the University of Saskatchewan. 

By day, Andrew is a Computer Programmer working in the IT department of a large company.  By night he is an avid techno-geek who spends many an hour building, and rebuilding computers, installing software and playing games (possibly to the chagrin of his wife!). Being proper Saskatchewan children, Andrew and his wife are die-hard Roughriders fans!

Will Martin - Artistic Director

Bio:

  Will grew up in a musical family on the South Coast of England, learning trumpet from the age of 8 and later also taking up percussion. He spent his early musical career playing regularly in many different Wind Ensembles, Symphony Orchestras, Big Bands and Brass Bands before moving to Greater Manchester in 2001 to complete a B.A. Hons degree in music at the University of Salford, under the tutelage of Prof. David King, Peter Graham and Dr. Roy Newsome.

Will has been a memeber and performed with some of the finest bands in the world including Yorkshire Building Society Band, Grimethorpe Colliery Band,  Besses o'th' Barn, Brighouse and Rastrick and the Fairey Band. During this time he won many honours including two European Championships, The National Championships of Great Britain, The All England Masters, The British Open, The Brass In Concert title, two Yorkshire Area titles in addition to touring extensively across the UK and Europe.

 Will moved to Canada in 2007 and now resides in Saskatoon with his wife, conducting Bridge City Brass since its inception in 2008.

Interests

For his sins Will is a devout Newcastle United FC fan, this however has not deterred him from following other sports almost as religously. He is also a keen follower of film, many different types of music and enjoys what free time he has, spent with his family.
