Notably, Chester was commissioned to compose a special piece commemorating the 30th anniversary of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, performed in by a live orchestra in the Canary Wharf HQ.


Most recent notable work includes additional orchestration for the Universal thriller feature 'Monkey Man', arranging for the '2023 BBC Proms' for a concert with the artist Self Esteem, and additional orchestrations for Darren Aronofsky's Immersive and innovative film 'Postcard from Earth' for The Sphere in Las Vegas.

Chester’s work has been performed in a variety of recording studios and performance venues including Abbey Road’s Angel Studios, Milton Court Concert hall, Barbican Cinema 1, Saffron Hall, Chelmsford Cathedral and Barbican Hall.
