Fifty years ago, composer Bruce Adolphe was given a walking, talking, flying birthday present: a green Panama parrot. The two have been together now for half a century. On the occasion of his 60th birthday, Bruce tells us about his friendship with a very special, musical bird on Friday's Performance Today, from APM.
