    Donato Cabrera will conduct the San Francisco Symphony and Chorus for a special evening with Singer-songwriter-pianist-storytelling showman Ben Folds, who will perform hits from his career as a solo artist and as frontman for alt-pop group Ben Folds Five. The extraordinarily creative Folds has earned a stellar reputation for his live performances with orchestra, fusing the catchy melodies of pop music with the power of a full orchestra to create an unforgettable concert experience. An engaging artist, brimming with spontaneity, wit, and soul, Folds appears at Davies Symphony Hall for just one night—and it’s a night you won’t want to miss.
