Sounds of Simon & Garfunkel

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 Joffrey Ballet: The Rite of Spring

Gould/Robbins: Interplay
Adams/Welch: Son of Chamber Symphony
Stravinsky/Nijinsky: The Rite of Spring [100th Anniversary Commemoration]

An evening of ballet with the renowned Joffrey Ballet, highlighted by a staged performance of Stravinsky's profoundly influential and once-controversial ballet score, The Rite of Spring. The ballet's premiere in 1913 was scandalous - the adventurous score, outrageous costumes, unusual choreography, and bizarre story of pagan sacrifice caused audience riots in the streets. The music is now admired for its brilliance and innovation.

Blossom Music Center, which opened in 1968 as the summer home of The Cleveland Orchestra, is located 25 miles south of Cleveland just north of Akron, Ohio. The Center's name honors the Dudley S. Blossom family, major supporters of The Cleveland Orchestra throughout its history. Blossom is situated in the rolling hills of Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which protects 33,000 acres along the Cuyahoga River between Akron and Cleveland. Blossom lies within the city limits of Cuyahoga Falls, an Ohio community first settled in the early 1800s, at 1145 West Steels Corners Road in Summit County. Blossom reopened in 2003 following the completion of the Blossom Redevelopment Project, which featured a highly-acclaimed renovation of the facility and improved patron amenities. The Blossom Redevelopment Project was the first major capital improvements project in the history of the facility, which serves more than 400,000 visitors each summer. The Blossom Festival is a smoke-free environment. Smoking is not permitted at concerts and other events during the Blossom Festival.

Blossom Music Center address: 1145 W Steels Corners Rd., Cuyahoga Falls, OH.
