Jack Capstaff

Conductor | Composer | Repetiteur

Jack Capstaff, born 1994, is an up and coming conductor and composer of a wide variety of musical genres and ensembles. Having studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama under the likes of Peter Reynolds, Dr. Robert Spearing and Michael McCartney for composition and Dr. John Traill for conducting in the contemporary music department, Jack’s specialism lies in the creation and performance of contemporary repertoire but firmly believes in the use of skills transferable from this endeavour to that of more classical rep and beyond. Jack has been conducting since the age of fifteen and cut his teeth with the York Railway Institute Golden Rail Brass Band. Whilst in York, Jack was the musical director of a number of pantomimes and went on to study composition and conducting at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

Now back living in Yorkshire, and as well as some freelance orchestral conducting and teaching work, Jack now holds two residencies: one with the South Yorkshire Police Band and the other Harlequin Brass.
