Matt Aument is an theater orchestrator and arranger based in New York City. Most recently he was music director for the intimate London import of Sweeney Todd at Barrow Street Theater. This summer, Matt will be music director for the adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s The Waves in a developmental production at New York Stage and Film. He’s also crafting new arrangements for The Wizard of Oz with the Paramount Theater in the greater Chicago area, and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples, Florida.
Past projects include orchestrations for Tim Rosser and Charlie Sohne’s song cycle “With the Right Music” for the Oakland Symphony, score adaptation for the Broadway revival of Gigi (2015), and orchestrations for a refreshed Camelot at Drury Lane in Chicago. Passionate about the development of new work, Matt has collaborated with cabarettist Molly Pope and playwright Dan Fishback and created orchestrations for Joseph and David Zellnik’s YANK!
