Art Garfunkel returning to CAC after 25 years

The legendary Art Garfunkel, among the Community Arts Center’s opening acts in 1993, is returning to headline the venue’s 25th Anniversary season. The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. March 13.

Art GarfunkelHailed by The New York Times as a “beautiful countertenor,” Garfunkel has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of Simon and Garfunkel. He has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry and released 12 solo albums, the most recent being “Some Enchanted Evening” in 2007.

Garfunkel was originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow New York City native Paul Simon.  Their greatest-hits collection – which includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound of Silence,” “The Boxer” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water” – is one of the bestselling albums of all time.

Garfunkel published “Still Water,” a collection of poetry in 1989, and began an amazing trek across America – on foot.  But the ’80s and ’90s still found him doing what he does best: singing for an audience.

“Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,” says Garfunkel, who relishes the opportunity to perform new and classic material for fans around the world. “I’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job. I try to soothe, to lift … That’s my life.”  In his intimate show that features himself, a guitarist and often a piano/keyboard player, you’ll hear poetry, stories and (of course) his greatest hits.

Tickets may be purchased online, on the CACLive! App, by phone at 570-326-2424 or at the CAC box office.

At the request of the artist, the Community Arts Center will not sell seats in the loge or balcony. The upstairs restrooms and the Capitol Lounge will still be available to all patrons during the event.
