The iconic "Concert in Central Park" was Simon & Garfunkel's gift to their fans and the city of New York. WVPB fans can relive the magic of this performance Wednesday, September 16 at 9:30 p.m. 

On September 19, 1981, Simon & Garfunkel reunited for a free public concert on the Great Lawn of New York City’s Central Park, raising awareness and funding to help restore the world’s most famous urban park. The duo had rarely performed since their breakup in 1970, but their music continued to resonate with the city from which they came. This unforgettable performance, which drew one of the largest audiences ever assembled for a single concert, features all of Simon & Garfunkel’s greatest hits as well as selections from their solo catalogs.
