“Ben Folds’ first-class melodic gifts, irony-laced lyrics, and punk rock tendency to play piano as if it were a contact sport have earned him a legion of devoted fans of all ages.”

The original, independent and sometimes pioneering Folds kicks off a new series that the Seattle Symphony claims has an “edgier lineup” than in previous years. Rufus Wainwright will perform on November 8; Max Raabe and Palast Orchester appear on February 23 and Leahy closes the program on March 17.
