Jan. 15 Feelin’ Groovy: The Music of Simon & Garfunkel Holland Center, 1200 Douglas St. 8 p.m., $25-$70, 342.3560 omahasymphony.org The sounds of the ’60s will forever live on in America’s consciousness as a time when music was made for the sake of music and rock ‘n’ roll was still pure. This Sunday treat yourself to taste of those golden years, or relive your glory days when the Omaha Symphony brings back the groovy feelings and songs of Simon and Garfunkel. Presented by series sponsors First National Bank and artist sponsor Midlands Choice, this night of free love will warm the hearts of all old souls who attend amidst the fresh layer of winter we recently received. Feelin’ Groovy is the second program of the successful Symphony Rock Series and will be conducted by Maestro Ernest Richardson with vocals provided Canadian sensation Jim Witter who has 10 top 10 radio hits and multiple award nominations in his homeland. The folk duo’s original music will be enhanced with live orchestral accompaniment covering their biggest hits like “Homeward Bound”, “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and, my favorite, “Mrs. Robinson.”
