Oregon Symphony with Trey Anastasio

[PHISHY CLASSICAL] Both classical and rock fans have reason to be skeptical of the new generation of pops concert, which boosts orchestras' bottom lines with aging rockers instead of their grandparents' big-band arrangements. But the Oregon Symphony has been doing it more often and better than most, sometimes featuring rockers whose music uses the orchestra to do more than play chords behind bloated versions of old hits. This crossover concert looks more promising than most: Trey Anastasio studied classical composition in college before fronting Phish. He's pushed beyond pop before, in co-writing a Broadway musical last year (winning a Tony nomination) and composing other orchestral and chamber works, some of which drew raves from The New York Times. Plus, he's bringing li'l ol' us (not Seattle or L.A., his next stops) the world premiere performance of his newest orchestral piece, Petrichor, which refers to that heady scent that emerges from nature after the first rain of the season—an apt concept for this end of summer show. Anastasio himself will sit in with the orchestra on guitar.
