A true renaissance man, Dunn is a noted arranger, orchestrator and distinguished pianist, who made his 1999 Carnegie Hall debut playing his own orchestration of Vernon Duke’s ‘lost’ Piano Concerto in C. Also, though he does not practice medicine, Dunn holds an M.D., board certification in eye surgery and fellowship in the American College of Surgeons.
A former assistant to Lukas Foss and student of Byron Janis, Dunn has served as Associate Conductor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra since 2012.
