On Saturday, Sept. 17, singer-songwriter Ben Folds — currently on tour for “Lonely Avenue” — returns to the Twin Cities for a single night to perform with the Minnesota Orchestra, led by Sarah Hicks, principal conductor of pops and presentations.
Known for his singularly subversive rock style, Ben Folds made a wildly successful Orchestra Hall debut in October 2009, performing for a sell-out crowd.
In this special return engagement, concert-goers will hear more favorite Folds hits, including “You Don’t Know Me,” “Kylie from Connecticut,” “Cologne,” “Smoke,” “Fred Jones” and “Evaporated.”
(To sample the concert, visit Minnesota Orchestra’s Ben Folds event page and choose a music or video clip from the listings.)
Following the concert, join Crescendo Project — the young patrons group of the Minnesota Orchestra — for an exclusive, members-only backstage afterparty in the green room!
