Trey Anastasio Performs with National Symphony Orchestra

Last night, Trey Anastasio performed with the the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. The Phish guitarist offered an evening of music that included classics from his solo project as well as the Phish catalog. While a lot of the set consisted of tunes that Anastasio played during last year’s orchestra shows, he performed his solo tune “Frost” in symphonic form for the first time.

Anastasio also dedicated “Brian and Robert” to his longtime songwriting partner Tom Marshall during the second set. At one point, a seemingly intoxicated fan disrupted the show in an attempt to get Anastasio’s attention. Apparently she was pretty stoked that the guy on stage was “literally Trey.”

The Trey Anastasio Band will perform at Summer Camp and DelFest this weekend. You can watch a high quality video of their recent Hangout Festival show here.
