Paul Simon Performs At Kennedy Center Gala Commemorating JFK Inauguration

Paul Simon performed “The Sound Of Silence” tonight at the Kennedy Center, as part of a gala concert that kicked off a two-week festival commemorating the 50th anniversary of the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy. The Washington Post wrote that his performance was an “immediate highlight” and “the moment said a lot more about our lives, or the time between the Kennedy era and now, than anything else on the program.” You can read more about the show at
