"Mr. Olt's original arrangement of Bells of St. Michael for The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra was stunning. It possesses brilliant orchestration, inventive use of counter melody and a thrilling finish. His arrangement was a centerpiece of The Pops 2014 Florida Tour, and has become a staple of our holiday programming in Cincinnati."
"I am very impressed with the speed, response and quality to our need for this music."
"Wow! What a genius; I like the arrangement “Praise the Lord with Drums and Cymbals.” When I listened to it I got tears in my eyes. Job well done!"
"Tim's arrangement of Bruckner symphonic excerpts for a tuba-euphonium ensemble is imaginative and beautifully scored. I thoroughly enjoyed preparing it, and only regret that we didn't have more time to enjoy its sonic splendor!"
“Tim is a stellar, first-rate orchestrator and arranger. He is easy to work with, timely, and very ethical in addition to being extremely creative. His arrangements show a great understanding of the orchestra along with a sensitivity and originality that both complement the orchestra (and soloists) and also allow them to play something enjoyable and, often, challenging”
"Tim Olt is a gifted arranger and copyist. He works quickly and he is attentive to detail and wishes (Tim wants the chart to be right). I will gladly turn to Tim Olt for various projects in the future with the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra."
"I am a big fan of Tim Olt’s arrangements for brass. I recently asked for an arrangement of Hora Staccato by Grigoras Dinicu for solo trumpet with brass quintet. He was easy to work with and gave me a great arrangement to use right away. I gave some feedback on how I wanted the accompaniment parts to sound and I was satisfied with the results. He also presented the files as pdf’s and XML’s so I could use with my Blackbinder App. The score and parts were professional quality and I would highly recommend Tim’s work for anyone looking for a professional sounding arrangement of any brass piece!"
