On March 1 & 2 at Laurie Auditorium, the San Antonio Symphony Pops presents nationally acclaimed duo AJ Swearingen and Jonathan Beedle. They have been performing this remarkable tribute to the music of “Simon & Garfunkel” for more than a decade and their sold out shows prove the effect on their audiences is undeniable. A chance meeting in 1991, in a local club in Bethlehem, PA, brought these two talented artists together. A brief introduction and moments later they were blending their voices as if they had been performing together for a lifetime. AJ’s warm baritone and Jonathan’s soaring tenor combine flawlessly to capture the essence and magic of “Simon & Garfunkel’s” sound of the early years in Greenwich Village. With their magical voices, a magnificent symphonic accompaniment and an acoustic guitar, A.J. and Jonathan re-create the memories of the classic hits and obscure songs of “Simon & Garfunkel.” Discover why audiences are cheering for this duo as they capture —the magic of “Simon and Garfunkel.”
