Trey Anastasio with the Nashville Symphony
Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 7:30 p.m.
Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Steven Reineke, conductor
Over the past three decades, composer/guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio has forged a multifaceted career, winning acclaim in rock, classical and theatrical circles. Anastasio joins the Nashville Symphony for a one-night-only performance, which will feature orchestrations of classic Phish songs and solo Anastasio compositions.
He is a founding member of Phish, one of today’s most successful and innovative rock bands. This past January, Phish announced The Baker’s Dozen, an unprecedented 13-night run at the world-renowned Madison Square Garden in New York City, beginning July 21. The Baker’s Dozen will bring Phish’s total performances at the famed arena to 52.
Anastasio has received Grammy nominations for his work with Phish and as a solo artist. He also received a Tony nomination for “Best Original Score” for the Broadway musical “Hands on a Hardbody.” In the summer of 2015, Anastasio joined the surviving four members of the Grateful Dead for five stadium shows, which celebrated the band’s 50th anniversary and served as the band’s farewell shows.
The New York Times hailed his Carnegie Hall performance with the New York Philharmonic as “that rarest of rarities, a classical-rock hybrid that might please partisans from both constituencies.” In 2014, Anastasio debuted a new piece for guitar and orchestra, entitled “Petrichor," on a West Coast orchestral tour that concluded with a performance at the Hollywood Bowl, marking his second performance with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
