Signature SeriesGreat American Songbook: The Music of Paul Simon
Berklee’s annual Great American Songbook pays tribute to Paul Simon, an icon of American music who has been writing and performing indelible songs since he and Art Garfunkel formed their duo in 1964.
Songs such as “Sounds of Silence,” “Bridge over Troubled Water,” “Graceland,” “Still Crazy after All These Years,” “Kodachrome,” “Late in the Evening,” and so many others have helped define popular culture in the United States for more than 50 years. He has performed on Broadway and in film and television, and is the recipient of 12 Grammy Awards and an honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee.
The Great American Songbook concert adds Simon’s name to the list of those it has celebrated in the past, including Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, and Stevie Wonder. The concert is produced by the Yo Team.
