"Sound of Silence" performed by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel

  The show opened with the song "Sound of Silence" performed by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. A wonderfully played song, and all acoustic at that! Both musicians received a Lifetime Achievement Award this year due to their excellence over many decades. Other recipients of the 2003 Lifetime Achievement Award included Etta James, Johnny Mathis, Glenn Miller, Tito Puente. Engineer, producer and folk music archivist Alan Lomax and the New York Philharmonic were honored with Trustees Awards.
