Ben Folds and WASO Live in Perth is a DVD featuring performances by singer-songwriter and pianist Ben Folds, backed by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra. Filmed over two nights on March 12 & 13, 2005 at Kings Park and Botanical Gardens in Perth, Australia – a venue Folds jokingly refers to as a “luminous green petri dish” – the DVD offers 14 songs from the three major Ben Folds Five albums and Folds’ debut solo album Rockin’ the Suburbs.

Played to over 9000 fans, the two concerts featured on the DVD represent the first time Folds’ music was set to an orchestra; this is a trend Folds has since continued with performances with various orchestras around the United States and the world, including Cleveland’s Contemporary Youth Orchestra, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, members of The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, and the Boston Pops. Folds’ music was rewritten and arranged specifically for symphonic performance by members of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Simon Kenway.
