Ben Folds to reunite with his former band the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

Ben Folds will perform again with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in 2020.

Folds last perform with the MSO in September 2006. The show in March is said to be a one-off.

“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,” Ben Folds said in a statement.

Ben has performed with orchestras such as the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Minnesota Orchestra.
