The Heritage Orchestra is a British orchestra founded by Chris Wheeler and Jules Buckley. They perform mainstream, cult, experimental and popular music. The orchestra, which ranges between 25 and 65 members, has performed internationally in venues such as the Sydney Opera House, Emirates Palace, and Hollywood Bowl, and tours throughout the UK to major concert halls and large-scale arenas, including The O2 Arena in London.

In 2010, The Heritage Orchestra was nominated in the 9th Independent Music Awards and won the Contemporary Classical Album award for their performance of Gabriel Prokofiev's 'Concerto for Turntables and Orchestra' along with DJ Yoda.[1] In 2017 the orchestra reached Number One in the UK Album Charts with BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong and their album Classic House.[2] The orchestra performs regularly at the BBC Proms.

Directors[edit]

Heritage Orchestra was founded in June 2004 by Artistic Director/Producer Christopher Wheeler and Conductor/Composer Jules Buckley. Wheeler was profiled in 2011 as one of the "cultural engineers" of Honda's Dream Factory.[3] Jules Buckley is chief conductor of the Metropole Orkest in the Netherlands winning a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album with Snarky Puppy on their album Sylva.[4] Wheeler and Buckley have worked together since meeting in 2001 at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London.
