Arranger

Jamie has arranged everything from a Haydn Symphony for a Covid-conscious orchestra to Aerosmith’s “Dream On” for a side-by-side orchestra of students and professionals. His orchestrations and arrangements for the Dallas Symphony include songs from the movie The Fault in Our Stars, a re-imaging of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony as music to accompany a Greek myth for a family concert, and a medley of melodies written by students after observing the behaviors of different animals in the zoo. He has arranged countless works from the standard orchestral repertoire for student ensembles.

“Jamie Allen’s work shows an uncanny ability to create exactly the right marriage between the musical and visual image.”
