The muse for next year's installment of Carnegie Hall's annual music education benefit is Paul Simon. The March 31 show at the legendary NYC theater will feature special guests covering selections from Simon's songbook to benefit music education for underprivileged youth.

For the show, 20 artists will cover twenty different Paul Simon songs. The lineup will be revealed shortly, according to a press release.

Last year's concert was a tribute to Prince, which featured a rare appearance from D'Angelo, backed by the Roots. Over the past nine years, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, R.E.M., Neil Young, the Who and the Rolling Stones have also been honored.

Over the course of the series, over a million dollars have been raised for charities like Young Audiences New York, Little Kids Rock, and Church Street School of Music.

Tickets can be purchased here.
