Jack SheenConductor, composer
Jack Sheen is a musical polymath, in demand as both conductor and composer, as well as a creator of dynamic cross-arts projects. At home in modern and contemporary music, he brings his compositional insight to interpretations of core repertoire that have been highly praised. His rare set of talents and passions drives a vision for the future of classical music, and he is an active force for change.
Not yet 30, Sheen has already worked with leading orchestras including London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, Britten Sinfonia, Royal Northern Sinfonia, and Manchester Camerata. Last season he returned to the Lucerne Festival Contemporary Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic and London Sinfonietta, as well as serving as a Guest Artist at Tanglewood Music Centre.
His own music encompasses concert works for orchestras, ensembles and soloists, alongside immersive performance-installations that disperse live musicians, audio, film, and dancers around spaces such as galleries or warehouses. He has been commissioned by orchestras including London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, Aurora Orchestra and Manchester Camerata.
