Where classical and pop music collide

I've been listening to Ben Fold's new album So There pretty much non-stop for the past couple weeks. Suffice it to say, I absolutely love it, and I'd like to find more artists/albums that have similar qualities to both parts of the album, but I'm stumped as to where I should look for it.

Ending concerts with concerti?

I recently came across an article (which, of course, is now lost to my browser's history) that offhandedly mentioned that traditional classical concerts rarely end with a solo concerto. Is this in fact true? If so, why would that be the case?

Trumpet concerto repertoires?

TrumpetFilter: A long shot I know, BUT.. I'm a 17 year old trumpet player of reasonably high student standard, and I have recently been asked to consider performing a concerto sometime in the summer with my local youth orchestra. Could anyone suggest any suitable repertoire? (Not Arutiunian, Mozart, Haydn or Hummel).
