Taking the city by storm, HERE’S TO YOU, now on at Montecasino, is as much a celebration of the music of the brilliant duo that was SIMON AND GARFUNKEL as it is a celebration of the incredible talent that is showcased on that stage.
Young, exciting and at the top of their game, these 8 performers will astound you with their musicality and tight harmonies as they perform one familiar Simon and Garfunkel hit after the other. There are some lesser known songs tucked in too, to add a touch of the unknown or less-familiar. Even the familiar tunes are given a spruce up with exquisite arrangements from the likes of Bryan Schimmel and Wessel Odendaal, along with Daniel Keith Geddes and Jaco van Rensburg.
“HERE’S TO YOU is a fresh take on Simon & Garfunkel’s classic songs that speak to all ages. The production features thrillingly fresh, yet beautifully faithful re-interpretations of the duo’s evergreen songs, blending nostalgia and imagination, so that generations, young and old can discover the magic of their music as if for the very first time.
Simon & Garfunkel’s music is always unexpected and full of story, making it the ideal source material for a theatrical production.
However, we did not want this production to be just about them, or us, so for the most part this show is not a history lesson or an impersonation. Instead we wanted to make the show for you – the audience.
Perhaps something in this songbook resonates closely with a time in your own life-be it long ago,or just today.
So, Here’s to You!”
