STL SYMPHONY WELCOMES BEN FOLDS BACK TO POWELL HALL
(ST. LOUIS) – Singer/songwriter Ben Folds brings his funky blend of pop, rock and punk back to Powell Hall for two upcoming concerts with the St. Louis Symphony: April 12 and 13 at 7:30pm.
Folds, who played to a sell-out crowd at Powell Hall in 2011, has long been an advocate of orchestral music and is expected to play his new piano concerto with the St. Louis Symphony.
Tickets for both concerts are still available. They may be purchased by calling 314-534-1700, on-line at stlsymphony.org or in person at the Powell Hall Box Office, located at 718 North Grand Boulevard.
Founded in 1880 and now in its 134th season, the St. Louis Symphony is the second-oldest orchestra in the country and widely considered one of the world’s finest. In September 2005, internationally acclaimed conductor David Robertson became the 12th Music Director, the second American-born conductor to hold that post in the Orchestra’s history. The St. Louis Symphony strives for artistic excellence, fiscal responsibility and community connection while meeting its mission statement: enriching people’s live through the power of music. The Symphony presents a full season of classical programs and Live at Powell Hall concerts, as well as hundreds of free education and community programs each year.
