Arranging is an integral part of Bernard's profile as a musician.
While spending a year at UNT (University of North Texas), famous for its 9 student Big Bands, he had the privilege to study arranging with Paris Rutherford. He continued his studies in the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with the Head of Film Music, Jurre Haanstra.
A large part of his recent work has materialized through "The BvR Flamenco Big Band", an XL flamenco-jazz ensemble featuring his own compositions, arrangements and lyrics.
Bernard also arranges for other groups of differing formats and varying musical genres. Among them for example the street symphonic orchestra "Ricciotti Ensemble" or the legendary "Nederlands Blazzers Ensemble".
