Kodachrome: The Music of Paul Simon


Ted Sperling, conductor
Morgan James, vocalist
Ryan Shaw, vocalist
San Diego Symphony Orchestra


Maestro Ted Sperling brings the music of legendary singer-songwriter Paul Simon to The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park. Simon's far-reaching catalog of songs have unquestionably become part of America’s, and the world’s, shared musical history.

Paul Simon has been crafting tunes and enchanting audiences for more than half a century, penning hundreds of songs from “The Boxer” to "Bridge over Troubled Water” to the indelible music of the Graceland album, and many more. In this special symphonic program, favorite hits, as well as a few deep cuts, are brought to life by two powerhouse singers, Morgan James and Ryan Shaw, in new orchestrations that showcase the enduring excitement of these iconic songs.

Selections span Simon's decades-long career: “Mrs. Robinson,” "Still Crazy After All These Years,” “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard” and more!

This is music to make you happy. Bring friends, bring family and enjoy a night of music you’ll be singing for weeks to come!
