NSO DECLASSIFIED® with Ben Folds
Join Artistic Advisor Ben Folds and your National Symphony Orchestra next Friday for a digital DECLASSIFIED® concert! We'll be sharing some never-before-seen performance clips along with some of Ben's favorites from past concerts.
We pledge that more of them will be heard on the stages of the nation’s cultural center, as we continue in our ongoing effort to reflect the entire nation through the performing arts and within our organization.
We know we can do better—through the art we present on our stages and by ensuring that the Center is always a home for critical conversations about race and discrimination. We are preparing strategies to be in greater service of Black artists, audiences, and communities. We will be sharing those initiatives in the coming weeks and hold ourselves accountable to all of you.
