Bruno Newman is a composer, orchestrator, arranger and conductor whose widely-praised writing has been described as both “fresh and powerful” and “intensely emotional”. His compositions encompass virtually every genre from large-scale orchestral works, vocal and choral settings to more intimate chamber and solo pieces.

In 2001 he founded London's Resident Recording Studios where he has been producing and songwriting for over 17 years, working with international artists, bands, orchestras and choirs. As a multi-instrumentalist and composer, he has been credited for bringing exciting harmonies, innovative textures and a strong melodic interest to his arrangements, blurring the boundaries of electronic and classical in a compelling and original musical voice.

Bruno's musical education began at Magdalen College, Oxford followed by an MA in Orchestration for Film, Games and Television, passing with distinction. In more recent years he has been awarded a Licentiate of Trinity College London in Composition and is currently studying for his PhD in Composition at the University of Chichester. 

Recent performances have ranged from a suite for full orchestra recorded by the City of Prague Philharmonic, a four-movement contemporary string quartet, to a large choral work premiered under baton of Jonathan Willcocks.

In addition to tutoring in Composition at The University of Chichester, Bruno also teaches harmony, music theory, composition and orchestration privately. He's a member of the Association of British Choral Directors, the Ivors Academy and the Incorporated Society of Musicians, and is frequently in demand as a freelance music journalist and choral conductor
