  • National Symphony Orchestra
  • Singer/songwriter and piano powerhouse Ben Folds is known for his keen musicianship and warm, honest lyricism. In addition to his impressive pop repertoire, he composed a piano concerto that he will perform as part of a global symphonic tour. “Devising forceful songs grounded in supposedly uncool nonrock styles like musical comedy and operetta, Ben Folds became the weakling who emerges from the phone booth as Superman.”—The New York Times
  • Steven Reineke, music director of The New York Pops and principal pops conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra, is praised for his creative compositions and presentation: “With the peppy, husky growl of a radio DJ and the fervor of a boxing announcer, Reineke’s excitement and passion for the material is pleasantly infectious to orchestra and attendees alike.”—Edge New York, New York
  • Program Notes from Emil de Cou: Bridge Over Treble Music
