Fall Tour Announced and Ben Joins the National Symphony as Artistic Advisor

12/June/2017 - by Allison

This morning Ben Folds' team annouced a myriad of North American tour dates this fall, which stretch coast to coast, from Vancouver to Miami. There are some under represented tour locations on this list, so if you're used to being passed over, be sure to check out the tour listing, and hopefully a gift will be there for you! These shows are all Paper Airplane request shows. 

Ben will be joining the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington D.C. as the (first!) Artist Advisor through 2020. He will perfom, advise, and collborate with the Orchestra on programming and certain events. Ben will curate the "DECLASSIFIED" events, the first of which is upcoming on June 30th (features Ben himself, Blake Mills and Danay Suarez, and Be Steadwell as preshow). Ben will also be responsible for the NSO's Young People's Concerts and Family Concerts, and serve as a mentor to students in the education programs through NSO.  

A quote from Ben on the partnership;  "I’m excited about the possibilities—from music education to concerts—putting my favorite current musical artists together with our nation's capitol's symphony orchestra at the Kennedy Center to make something new. I’m looking forward to taking this creative journey together.”
