According to the website: "Seis de Mayo is an album of all-instrumental compositions written and recorded between 2001 and 2003. The seven tracks are performed by a variety of ensembles — string quartets, brass quintets, small and full orchestras. … Featured artists include Mike Gordon, The Ying Quartet and the SeattleMusic 66-piece orchestra. … Trey released his first orchestral album, 'Seis De Mayo' in April 2004. 'Seis' features some new material as well as re-arranged originals like 'All Things Considered' (performed by a string quartet) and 'Guyute' (performed by the 66-piece orchestra, SeattleMusic). That summer Trey made his second appearance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in an unusual role - conducting the Nashville Chamber Orchestra through a special set featuring orchestral material from 'Seis De Mayo.'
