Symphonic Dead

Bob Weir of the is working with a symphony orchestra based near his home just north of the Golden Gate Bridge on a program of material featuring songs from the Grateful Dead catalog. The 41 member Marin Symphony and Weir will perform the songs once he  and composer-arranger Giancarlo Aquilanti finish working out arrangements for the final selection of songs from the vast collection of material they have to draw from.  The guitarist is also working with a smaller group of musicians in the orchestra to develop a set of improvised music that will be presented in a benefit concert to raise money for the Symphony and its educational programs.
