Folds was the front man of Ben Folds Five before going on to have a successful solo career. A critically acclaimed celebrity judge on NBC’s “The Sing Off,” Folds has earned a reputation as a singular and influential voice in the world of popular music.

In 2012, Folds was commissioned to compose his first piano concerto, a unique blend of three movements that test the bounds of traditional orchestral music.
