Last night, Trey Anastasio played the first of two special symphony orchestra shows at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, as the Phish frontman teamed up with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra for a performance that featured two sets of Anastasio’s compositions reimagined for an orchestral setting.
The first set kicked off with “First Tube,” a debut for Anastasio with an orchestra, and also featured the orchestral debuts of “Summer of ’89” and “What’s the Use?“Set two opened with the first “Time Turns Elastic” since Anastasio played it with the Los Angeles Philharmonic back in 2014 and also ran through the Big Boat epic “Petrichor” and the Phish classic “You Enjoy Myself.” Anastasio returned for a two-song encore, starting with the orchestral debut of “The Lizards” followed by “Water in the Sky.”
See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section, along with some video clips of the night above and below. Anastasio will perform with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra tomorrow, September 29.
