A founding member of the GRAMMY®-nominated, genre-melding rock band Phish, Anastasio has also released eight solo albums, A curious and constant composer, he draws inspiration from experimental jazz, classical, pop, reggae, metal and barbershop music. In 2009, Anastasio made his debut with the New York Philharmonic and Baltimore Symphony in programs that featured his concerto for electric guitar and orchestra, Time Turns Elastic, as well as original compositions.

The New York Times hailed Anastasio’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.”

Over the past 25 years, Anastasio has established himself as a prolific composer, masterful guitarist (named by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time) and compelling performer. In 2009, Rubber Jungle Records released Anastasio’s studio recording of Time Turns Elastic with The Northwest Sinfonia, conducted by David Sabee. He is currently working on a new musical with composer/lyricist Amanda Green entitled Hands on a Hard Body, which is based on S.R. Bindler’s 1997 documentary of the same name about a pickup-truck competition in Longview, TX.

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.
