At age 10, I remember listening to my neighbor’s parent’s Simon & Garfunkel albums,“Bridge Over Troubled Water” and "Simon and Garfunkel Greatest Hits." We sang “Cecilia and Homeword Bound” over and over again. As a child, I loved the harmony and the stories told in the music and to this day I gravitate toward artists that have poetic lyrics and that harmonize. This 1960’s duo was truly a magical musical union that fit together like no other. They produced songs that lasted the test of time or the kind that when played, you just start to sing along. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra POPS –Sounds of Simon & Garfunkel–with guests, AJ Swearingen and Jonathan Beedle, and under the direction of guest conductor, Michael Krajewski, brought back that magical sound enriched with Pittsburgh's first class symphony orchestra.
