About Paul Phillips, conductor

Paul Phillips was appointed to the faculty of the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University in 1996 where he now serves as Professor of Music and Music Director of the Meadows Symphony Orchestra. Before joining the faculty of the Meadows School, Dr. Phillips served for twelve years as music director of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra in New London, and was professor of music at the University of Connecticut, where he held the position of chair of the Music Department and music director of the University of Connecticut Symphony Orchestra. A native of Dallas, Dr. Phillips completed undergraduate studies at Southern Methodist University, where he studied with James Rives Jones. While earning his Master of Arts and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, Dr. Phillips studied with noted conductors David Effron and Gustav Meier. In 1980 Dr. Phillips was appointed assistant conductor of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra at the time Robert Shaw was music director.

About Gregory Raden, clarinet

Appointed principal clarinet of the Dallas Symphony in 1999, Gregory Raden has also served as assistant principal of the National Symphony Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin, principal clarinet of the Kennedy Center Opera Orchestra and principal clarinet of the Charleston Symphony. He has served as guest principal with the Minnesota Orchestra, Saint Louis Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Bergen (NORWAY) Philharmonic. He has been heard as soloist with the Dallas Symphony, National Symphony, Mainly Mozart Festival Orchestra, Charleston Symphony, and the New York String Orchestra in Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.

Raden's playing has been hailed by The Dallas Morning News as: “Exquisitely phrased, his was playing of amazing half-lights and subtle shadings of pastels…” The Fort Worth Star Telegram said of his performance of the Brahms Clarinet Quintet: “With flawless intonation and liquescent tone, Raden's playing was enormously artful, adding subtle hints of color and dynamic shading to the music making.” The Washington Post said: “Gregory Raden piped sweetly, raptly and with exquisite nuance.” He has been heard on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today” and on recordings with the Dallas Symphony on the Delos, Hyperion, and Bridge labels.

About the Dallas Symphony Orchestra

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra, under the leadership of Music Director Jaap van Zweden, presents the finest in classical music at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, regarded as one of the world’s premiere concert halls. Maestro van Zweden was named Musical America’s Conductor of the Year 2012, reflecting his critically acclaimed work with the DSO and as guest conductor with some of the world’s most esteemed orchestras.

As the largest and oldest performing arts organization in the southwest, the Dallas Symphony is committed to inspiring the broadest possible audience. Each year, the orchestra reaches more than 240,000 adults and 60,000 children through performances, educational programs and community outreach initiatives. In the last 25 years, the orchestra has released more than 30 CD recordings; toured Europe four times; and performed in Asia, Mexico, Washington D.C. at the Kennedy Center, and in New York at Carnegie Hall.

In his fourth year with the Dallas Symphony, Maestro van Zweden continues to deliver artistic excellence by bringing prominent and emerging guest soloists and conductors to Dallas, and by programming new works alongside beloved favorites. The DSO’s residency at the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival as well as invitations to prominent events, such as the 2011 Spring for Music Festival at Carnegie Hall, are also elevating the orchestra to national and international prominence.

Founded in 1900, the Dallas Symphony is now a central figure in the Dallas Arts District, the largest of its kind in the nation. The 68-acre district in downtown Dallas is home to multiple museums, parks, and performing arts venues, including the Meyerson Symphony Center.
