Ben is Back

When: Mon., June 2 2014

Cleveland's Contemporary Youth Orchestra has programed some daring music over the years. Director Liza Grossman specializes in contemporary music; she pioneered the Rock the Orchestra program that's a collaboration between the orchestra and rock legends. John Anderson, Bootsy Collins and Styx are some of the performers who've shared the stage with CYO, and tonight Ben Folds sits at the piano bench in Severance Hall to perform his Piano Concerto. Folds is no stranger to classical music. He's on the board of the Nashville Symphony and is a huge advocate for the genre and music education. This performance is part of his global symphonic tour; the show starts at 7:30. Tickets start at $29. (Gonzalez)
