Composer, orchestrator and conductor Jules Buckley has made a name for himself as one of Europe's most in-demand conductors and arrangers of hip contemporary orchestral projects.

Currently the Chief Conductor of Holland’s renowned Metropole Orkest – with whom he won a 2016 Grammy Award for their collaboration with Snarky Puppy with Sylva (released on GroundUP Music/Ropeadope Records) - and the Musical Director of the UK’s Heritage Orchestra, his daring approach to crossing and linking musical genres has brought him widespread acclaim. 

Here is a selection of his work that has been announced for 2016:
