Ben Rector and Cody Fry

with the Minnesota Orchestra

Sat Jun 15 — Sun Jun 16, 2024

Orchestra Hall

2 hours including intermission

Introducing a one-of-a-kind musical partnership between two "Old Friends." After selling out two shows at the Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra, Platinum-selling indie superstar Ben Rector and singer/songwriter/composer/producer Cody Fry are bringing their magic to Orchestra Hall. 

Rector’s ornate-but-relatable songs, influenced by pop, rock and folk music, have garnered over a billion streams and been featured in over a hundred TV shows, ads and films. Fry’s music (and orchestral prowess) has appeared in everything from national ad campaigns to video games, apps, fashion events and short films. Don’t miss these two put it all together backed by the Minnesota Orchestra for an amazing night or orchestral indie rock.

Things to know

  • Talk about a hot ticket: the first staging of this duo's orchestral show with the National Symphony Orchestra came with such high anticipation that it sold out in a pre-sale before their availability to the general public.
  • Ben Rector is the youngest person to ever win the Grand Prize in the pop category of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. He won the prize for his song "Conversation" in 2006 when he was just 20 years old.
  • Cody Fry received his first Grammy nomination in 2020 with a stunning cover of the Beatles' Eleanor Rigby.
