This weekend, I had the opportunity to perform with the Klezmer Band in this year’s Bealtemore Skidmania, a quintessential Skidmore show in which students showcase their interpretations of some of The Beatles' music. As someone who has wanted to be part of the show since I first saw it in 2015, I was beyond excited to get a behind-the-scenes experience.
On Thursday, Sept. 26, Paul Simon strode into Elisabeth Luce Moore Hall a bit after 3:35, with a casual, “Hi guys, sorry I’m late” to a group of 60 music students. At that moment, this short, balding man in a long-sleeved t-shirt, black jeans, and a baseball cap seemed too ordinary to be legendary. Yet, his voice was unmistakable, and he spoke about songwriting and his life with an air of both thoughtfulness and vast experience.
