Phish guitarist Anastasio to team with Baltimore Symphony
Trey Anastasio, the versatile guitarist of the rock band Phish, will be featured in a Baltimore Symphony Orchestra performance that includes the East Coast premiere of Time Turns Elastic, which he co-wrote with Don Hart and which was first performed last September in Nashville.
The concert, scheduled for May 21 at the Meyerhoff, will be conducted by BSO music director Marin Alsop. In addition to Time Turns Elastic, a work scored for vocals, electric guitar and orchestra, the program will feature other pieces by Anastasio and arrangements of songs from the Phish repertoire.
