US music icon Ben Folds will join Australia’s leading orchestras for a national tour, touching down in Melbourne for a one-off performance with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in March next year.
Known for his musical versatility across the pop and classical genres across his slate of solo albums, records with the Ben Folds Five and numerous collaborations, Folds has travelled the globe performing with some of the world’s best orchestras for over a decade, and currently acts as the National Symphony Orchestra’s artistic advisor in Washington!
“When I perform with an orchestra, I’m expressing myself through a different form than in a rock show. It’s a form that happens to be done by people who are among the best musicians on the planet,” Folds says.
Ben Folds will be rocking out with the MSO on Sunday, March 22 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Tickets are on sale now via the MSO’s website.
