Andrew Couperthwaite - Soprano Cornet
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!
