Sounds of Simon & Garfunkel at Blossom with the Cleveland Orchestra

Summertime in NE Ohio brings the sounds of the Cleveland Orchestra to Blossom Music Center. Let's relax on the lawn with a potluck picnic (you can bring your own wine as well) and listen as the Orchestra re-creates the sounds of this well-known duo.

"Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel’s literary lyrics, sculpted melodies, and exquisite harmonies created a folk-pop sound that propelled them to the top of the charts and left a mark on thousands of future singer-songwriters. With voices that blend effortlessly into that signature duo’s sound, AJ Swearingen and Jonathan Beedle re-create the memories of these classic hits, performing “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “The Sound of Silence,” “The Boxer,” “America,” ”Mrs. Robinson,” and more.

The Cleveland Orchestra
Michael Krajewski, conductor
AJ Swearingen, vocalist
Jonathan Beedle, vocalist

Tickets are $22.50. I have no idea if this event will sell out or not but I recommend buying your tickets now to assure your spot.  I have purchased a pack of 10 tickets for $150.  The first 10 people who send me a separate email indicating that they want a ticket AND who send me a check for $15 will get in at the reduced rate.  This event will be announced to at least one other meetup group, so respond quickly if you want a discounted ticket.

The concert starts at 7:00PM so we'll meet at Blossom around 6:00 to grab a space on the lawn and begin our picnic.  If anyone wants to meet earlier at Sarah's Vineyard across the street we can arrange for that too....let me know.

NOTE:  This is a family-friendly event.  Also, Blossom allows free admission for 2 people age 17 or under with each paid adult ticket. Please let me know if you wish to take advantage of this offer and I will instruct you on how to get your free tickets.

    Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday for a fantastic evening of music!! It was a pleasure to meet so many new friends. The food was great and the company of such a wonderful group of people was priceless. A special thanks to Lesa, Deb, and Robin for getting there early with balloons and saving us a great chunk of real estate front and center!

    Brad, thanks so much for organizing this event. It was an extraordinary evening of music, and vocals. It was really a cohesive, fun and bright group to share the talents of S&G. I don't think I have eaten so well as tonight. Lots of new friends and happy memories.

      Hi Amy. I think the tickets are all spoken for. I haven't heard from anyone else that they want to meet at Sarah's and I am busy this afternoon anyway. I should arrive at Blossom around 5:30. You can probably buy tickets at the gate for the regular price of $22.50. I'm sending you and email with more info.
