Coming up at the Morris Performing Arts Center in downtown South Bend, a wide selection of shows and concerts is coming up. The Simon and Garfunkel Story, a show about the iconic folk-rock duo, is showing on February 4th, 2022. The Simon and Garfunkel Story is a musical done concert-style that follows the journey of Simon and Garfunkel, from their humble beginnings to their split-up, to their wildly successful reunion in the early 80’s. This show is sure to entertain any fans of the group, and any lovers of the folk-rock genre.

Also showing at the Morris in February 2022 is the South Bend Symphony Orchestra: Cirque de la Symphonie. On February 12th at 7:30 P.M., the South Bend Symphony Orchestra will put on a Cirque du Soleil-esque show.
