The show, which will be called "The Ben Folds Orchestra Experience," is part of the Piccolo Spoleto Festival.
Folds, who is also the singer and pianist for the band Ben Folds Five, is known for hit songs like "Rockin The Suburbs," "Brick," "The Luckiest," "Song for the Dumped," and "Still Fighting It."
