Ben Folds will be playing a special concert Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Wolf Trap Filene Center in Vienna, Virginia with the National Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra will be conducted by Steven Reineke who is the music director for the New York Pops along with his work with the NSO. Ben Folds is probably best known for his work with Ben Folds Five, his solo work, his movie soundtrack work, and recently his television judging on The Sing Off.
The two hour concert will showcase several songs from Ben Folds Five and Ben Folds solo catalog. However, the songs will have the added depth of the orchestra. In other tour stops he has added a small choir and I would imagine Ben Folds will have a talented choir along with him at this stop. The North Carolina Music Hall of Fame member Ben Folds will also be highlighting a new piano concerto as well.
