Artistic Director & Principal Conductor - Jack Campey
Since graduating from the University of Exeter where he had a scholarship in composition and trumpet, Jack has held numerous conducting positions throughout the West Midlands and continues to be sort after for film, theatre and classical concerts.
Aside from conducting, Jack has a deep knowledge and passion for orchestration particularly that of musical theatre and film. His knowledge on the Golden Age of these art forms is vast and his blog on orchestrators has been published by ASMAC (American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers). This led to him visiting Los Angles in 2018 where he researched original score manuscripts at the Walt Disney Studios, Warner Bros. and the archive of the Academy Awards. In Jack’s words, “I was looking at the original scores of Disney’s Snow White with rings of coffee cup stains from the music department all over the place - little did they know at the time that they were adding their mark in history, quite literally”
When the pandemic struck in 2020, Jack hosted a series of ‘webinars’ for ASMAC exploring legendary orchestrators such as Conrad Salinger and Irwin Kostal. They featured a variety of participants including Dame Julie Andrews, John Williams, Michael Feinstein, Larry Blank, Marc Shaiman and many other industry experts.
Jack founded The Studio Orchestra in 2019 to create a platform to rightly showcase the kaleidoscopic variety of music from the stage and screen and is keen to take the orchestra to new heights and explore new possibilities that shine a spotlight on this incredible wealth of music.
