"The evening's freshest encounter was Dillon's First Symphony, written brilliantly for its string choirs and demonstrating that every modern symphony doesn't require steroidal brass and percussion forces. Dillon argues his case principally through strings and woodwinds, flavoring the mix with a pair of horns. propulsive energy defines the first and third movements, which possessed exceptional structural rigor and harmonic richness. Even more remarkable was the second movement -- a slow, ghostly sequence with slightly freakish double-bass solos and small, plaintive exclamations from the oboe. The entire symphony testifies to the composer's compelling, innate soulfulness."  -- Andrew Adler, Louisville Courier-Journal
