Highlights include Richard Rodney Bennett/Total Immersion broadcast live from London with the BBC Concert Orchestra, BBC Singers and Claire Martin; Sondheim and Jazz Side by Side with Ann Hampton Callaway, Bill Charlap and others at Disney Hall and elsewhere; the premiere of Dunn’s live to film orchestral adaptation of REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE with the LA Phil at Disney Hall and in 2019 with the Cleveland Orchestra at Severence Hall; 2017 world premiere of STAR TREK BEYOND live with the Seattle Symphony; Pixar’s RATATOUILLE live with the San Diego Symphony; and premieres of new one-act operas and Jonathan Dove’s MANSFIELD PARK for UCLA opera.

A true renaissance man, Dunn is also 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.
