Few pop artists seem better suited to team with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra than Ben Folds. Since his days in Ben Folds Five, the goofball sentimentalist his been gussying up piano-led crowd-pleasers with ballsy brass ("Army") and tearjerking strings ("Don't Change Your Plans"). His lesser solo work will surely be on display too, but here's hoping Folds digs deep into his back catalog for this special engagement.
