Ben Folds perform his hits LIVE with the MSO

One of the major music influencers of our time, Ben Folds, returns to Melbourne for a special evening with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

This all-ages event will take place at the Plenary, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Wharf.

A renowned pop artist as well as a critically-acclaimed classical music composer, and best selling author, Ben Folds is set to perform his hits LIVE accompanied by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

"I grew up playing in orchestras, so being on stage with one feels like home to me," Folds said. "When I take to the stage I don't demoralise the orchestra by bringing along a loud rock band and grafting high volume. In these concerts, the orchestra IS my band. When I perform with an orchestra, I tell audiences that I'm expressing myself through a different form than what they have come to expect in a rock show, a form that happens to be done by people who are among the best musicians on the planet and who do it all the time" Folds said.

Over the years, Folds has created an enormous body of genre-bending music that includes pop albums with Ben Folds Five, multiple solo albums, and numerous collaborative records. His last album was a blend of pop songs and his Concerto for Piano and Orchestra that soared to #1 in the US on both the Billboard classical and classical crossover charts.

Don't miss this very special event. Tickets are now on sale through www.mso.com.au/whats-on/2020/ben-folds-the-symphonic-tour.

Early bookings are advised. A VIP package is also available.
