Artistic Advisor to the NSO Ben Folds is back, headlining a special DECLASSIFIED® event featuring original music never before performed with an orchestra. These laid-back, late-night concerts, curated and hosted by Folds, defy the traditional classical music presentation by offering great live music in a casual setting with exciting guest artists.
“Come grab a drink and see some damn good music. It’s like coming over to my house, having a beer or a scotch, and dropping the needle on some awesome records. This series is especially good for those curious about classical music and, understandably, don’t know where to begin. You don’t have to dress up, just have a drink, sit back, and listen.”—Ben
This program is part of the NSO's DECLASSIFIED® series—late-night Friday programs featuring boundary-breaking music, dynamic multimedia, exciting pre/post-concert performances and parties, and audience interaction. Plus, you can bring drinks and snacks purchased at our refreshment bars into the Concert Hall!
Enjoy a free beer tasting with Port City Brewing before the show!
Additional support for DECLASSIFIED® is provided by Admiral Jay L. Johnson and Sydney McNiff Johnson.
