January 24th, 2008 - Doctor's Appointment
Doctor's Appointment

From this term onwards, the Bradford Boys' Choir will have a doctor's appointment at St Bede's School from 4-5pm every Thursday. Not because they're ill, but because their director, Christopher Johns, has been awarded a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Durham University, where he studied from 2003 - 2006.

His dissertation was about Finnish, Arabic and Modern Irish, but German is the foreign language he speaks best, as he was Assistant Choirmaster at Osnabrueck Cathedral before starting at Durham. Here he is pictured outside Durham Cathedral just after receiving his degree from Chancellor Bill Bryson.

Congratulations, Dr Johns!
