Recipient of the Hollywood Film Festival's first Outstanding Music in Film Visionary Award, a Grammy nominee for his 2005 CD "Orchestralli," and a 2003 inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Stewart Copeland — the former drummer and founder of The Police — has been responsible for some of the film world's most innovative and groundbreaking scores. His career includes the sale of more than 60 million records worldwide, and numerous awards, including five Grammy awards.

His most recent concert works include BEN-HUR, A Tale of the Christ which features Copeland as soloist in a live orchestral score for the 1925 silent film; Tyrant's Crush: Concerto for Trapset and Orchestra commissioned by the Pittsburgh Symphonoy, Poltroons in Paradise commissioned by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic; and Gamelan D'Drum, commissioned by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for the world percussion group D'Drum. 

In 2017, The Chicago Opera Theater premiered Copeland’s surreal chamber opera The Invention of Morel, a co-commission with Long Beach Opera based on the novel by Adolfo Bioy Casares. This season, The Sheriff of Luxembourg, Stewart Copeland’s rousing new work for solo percussion and tape, will be premiered by Christoph Sietzen in Cologne and toured in Europe throughout the season.
