Art Garfunkel isn’t just half of one of pop’s most successful duos, Simon and Garfunkel, he's a singer with the voice of an angel, a heavenly sound that inhabits the soul of a lyric like few others. After putting his singing career on hold in 2012 due to an undisclosed vocal issue, Garfunkel is now fully recovered and on tour in the United States. On Friday, March 7, and Saturday, March 8, he'll bring An Intimate Evening with Art Garfunkel to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

"The voice is back. I'm in flight again," states Garfunkel in a recent press release. "I believe I have grown through adversity. A new creation has emerged that is truly exciting me - my stage show." In addition to singing the classics that he performed with Paul Simon (who is also on the road this season with another duet partner, Sting), Garfunkel’s new program will feature originals (“Perfect Moment”), soft, romantic sambas (Antonio Carlos Jobim’s "Corcovado"), and Tin Pan Alley standards such as “Someone to Watch Over Me.” Garfunkel will end each set with a question and answer session where he’ll surely talk about his time as an actor, an author, and a newly minted husband and father.

Art Garfunkel will appear Friday, March 7 and Saturday, March 8, at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Van Pelt Auditorium, 2600 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy, Philadelphia, PA. Tickets are $65, reserved seats. For more info call 215.763.8100, or visit PhilaMuseum.org.
