2 ReviewsEndorse Juan Camilo Arboleda
One of the most accomplished and thorough arranger / composer / orchestator i've had the pleasure of working with. His writing abilities and creativity are second to none and man, his credit list is impressive. His string / orchestral arrangements are so imaginative (and also very well laid-out in terms of frequency ranges within competing instruments) so you should definitely check out Juan's work. You can thank me later :-)
I have known Juan Camilo for over 10 years. He is probably the most talented young arranger/orchestrator/composer in America. I've had the pleasure to be hired by Juan and I can attest his work is impeccable, and I can tell you he is the fastest score writer you'll find!!! I have also hired Juan Camilo for my own productions and he has always exceeded my expectations. Your work could not be in better hands with him!!
