The Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra is back and in full swing, and this weekend, they present the first Pops concert of the season with a celebration of one of America's greatest songwriters - Paul Simon.


Legends: The Paul Simon Songbook explores Paul's massive music catalog, which spans six decades, from his years with Simon and Garfunkel and his decades as a solo artist. The Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra will present some of Simon's most beloved songs, including "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "Me and Julio Down by The Schoolyard," "50Ways to Leave Your Lover," "Graceland," "Rhythm of the Saints," "America," "Sound of Silence," and more.

Lending a voice to Simon's iconic songs will be three guest vocalists - Paul Loren, Daniel Berryman, and Emily Drennan - who all have years of experience on Broadway, on television, and with other orchestras around the world.

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years

I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
