Graham Allen is an arranger, director, and producer from the South Shore of Massachusetts. After years of chamber and jazz choir under Jonathan Richter and Brian Raymond, he got his first taste of a cappella at Plymouth North High School. Pursuing a degree in Music Studies at UMass Lowell, Graham was immediately enamored with a cappella and quickly joined the male-identified UMass Lowell Hawkapella. While learning the tools of the trade of a chorus teacher, Graham cut his teeth arranging for the groups at UMass Lowell and for other groups by contract, learned and practiced directing choral, jazz, and a cappella rehearsals and clinics, and got his first taste of production spearheading Hawkapella’s first ICCA showing and premiere EP, “Hatched.” Part way through grad school, Graham pivoted his career aspirations away from choral teaching and towards higher education administration. Eventually securing a position in Hospitality & Events at UMass Lowell, Graham continued singing in post-collegiate groups and began professionally directing the Suffolk Ramifications. He is currently finalizing production on his latest project, “Evolution of Disney,” alongside one of his former Hawkapella members Chris Igoe.
