WRR101 Focus on the Arts: Ben Folds and the Dallas Symphony are uniting for a classically cool crossover experience

“I always hope that my shows can be a way in for some people,” says singer/songwriter/pianist Ben Folds. “What I want is for people to see the orchestra in the best possible light and then come back and see Prokofiev, or Ravel or Beethoven or Mozart or Mahler. There’s really insanely good music right around the corner and sometimes people don’t know about it.” Ben Folds will join the Dallas Symphony Orchestra to perform his music for two nights in Dallas and recently chatted with WRR’s Amy Bishop about the shows and his possible plans when the tour wraps up in December.
