Another Doctor in Boscombe

John Meredith, principal Eb bass of the Boscombe Band of the Salvation Army, has attained a PhD in Composition from Salford University.

As a part of his studies, under the auspices of Peter Graham, Meredith produced a thesis entitled Discovering Concepts, Colour and Texture in Music Making. The research-based doctorate also included the composition of two pieces for brass band, a jazz caprice for alto saxophone and symphonic wind band, a sonata for tuba and piano, a psalm setting for choir and orchesta and a piece for brass quintet.
