The New York Times hailed Trey's Carnegie Hall performance with the New York Philharmonic as "that rarest of rarities, a classical-rock hybrid that might please partisans from both constituencies. Set amid a generous group of popular Phish songs -- gentle, string-cushioned ballads like "Brian and Robert" and "Let Me Lie," as well as the audacious, intricate instrumentals "Guyute Orchestral" and "You Enjoy Myself" -- the new piece [Time Turns Elastic] could hardly have gone wrong."
Scott Dunn is the Associate Conductor of the LA Philharmonic's Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Highlights of his recent schedule include Vernon Duke's 'ORPHIC TRILOGY' with the St Petersburg Philharmonic; appearances with the Hollywood Bowl orchestra and such popular headliners as Beck, Chris Botti, Natalie Cole and others; the world premiere and Carnegie Hall repeat performance of Mohammed Fairouz's opera SUMEIDA'S SONG; and the West Coast premiere of Phillip Glass's rarely heard ANOTHER LOOK AT HARMONY PART IV.
