February 28, 2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of when Simon & Garfunkel's song Bridge Over Troubled Water reached #1, where it would remain for 1  1/2 months.  The song marked the height of Simon & Garfunkel's success and is still beloved today.  Often considered the thinking person’s rock ‘n’ rollers, Simon & Garfunkel were one of the most successful musical duos in history.  Using audio and visual content, Gary Wenstrup, adjunct professor at Oakton Community College, will trace the arc of Simon & Garfunkel’s career from their surprise teenybopper hit Hey Schoolgirl, to the folk-rock classic The Sound of Silence, to the ever popular Mrs. Robinson, and finally to the majesty of Bridge Over Troubled Water, Paul Simon's love song about friendship.

Presented with the Highland Park Senior Center.
