Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra: The Ben Folds Orchestral Experience
Ben Folds, joined by your Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, brings his first-class melodies and irony-laced lyrics from his greatest hits to Heinz Hall for one performance only! In addition to a litany of his pop hit arrangements, this performance will feature his new classical piano concerto.
Known for his work as a solo artist and as the frontman and pianist of Ben Folds Five, Ben is celebrated for a compositional style and playing technique that remain wholly unique and combine elements of the 'singer/songwriter' genre, jazz, and power rock. Ben Folds' music is evocative of artists such as Joe Jackson and Sir Elton John, with an added edge and bold infusion of energy and wit.
Consistently touring, Ben Folds has earned a reputation for his musicality, wit and charisma, which are best displayed at his energetic live shows.
