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.

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.
