Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel may have been plagued with troubled waters, but thankfully the sounds of silence that resulted from the American folk rock duo’s breakup have now ended. Vocalists AJ Swearingen and Jonathan Beedle have been selling out houses with their tribute show, The Sounds of Simon and Garfunkel, and now they’re returning to Houston for a three-day run with the Houston Symphony. Michael Krajewski conducts the concert, which includes “Sounds of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Mrs. Robinson.” “The first show we did with a symphony was in Houston, outside, for the Fourth of July. We did four songs in front of 30,000 people,” says Beedle. “AJ and I have been doing solo versions of this show since the early ’90s,” the Bethlehem, Texas, native concedes. “But the way these arrangements are written, the orchestrations just envelop you in beautiful sound.”

8 p.m. October 14 and 15, 7:30 p.m. October 16. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit $25 to $138.
