Living Art

As Jennifer Aniston revisits The Graduate in the recently released film Rumor Has It, one might feel compelled to revisit its groundbreaking soundtrack as well. So why not join Simon and Garfunkel's taller and more soft-spoken half at the Meyerson this weekend as he performs with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and conductor Richard Kaufman? The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has signed onto an impressive list of musical icons taking part in the Deloitte Pops Series, the DSO's salute to rising stars and living legends. And for the record: Art Garfunkel brings the hits. (You wouldn't leave a Supertramp concert without hearing "Breakfast in America," would you?) Garfunkel is not one to disappoint longtime fans, and the set list is expected to include "The Sound of Silence," "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Mrs. Robinson" as well as a few of G-Funk's solo hits such as "I Only Have Eyes for You" and "Looking for the Right One."
