The Music of Leonard Cohen: A Journey 1967 to 2016 - 4 October 2019

When: Friday, 4 October 2019 from 19:30-22:15

Where: Baycourt Community & Arts Centre - 38 Durham St, Tauranga

Presented by: Imperfect Offering - Performing Leonard Cohen & Baycourt Community Arts Centre

Imperfect Offering is delighted to perform in the Addison Theatre, Baycourt Tauranga with a programme of the music of Leonard Cohen.

The focus will be on Cohen’s life journey through his music on his first album Songs of Leonard Cohen in 1967 to his last album You Want it Darker released just weeks before his death in 2016. With a story that spans from a Jewish upbringing in Montreal, through Greek Island life with his muse Marianne to New York’s artist hang-out Chelsea Hotel to a Zen Buddhist sanctuary on Mount Baldy, Imperfect Offering will present the best songs from this journey.

Imperfect Offering have performed in sold out shows and standing ovations on a tour of North Island. Venues have included Forum North Whangarei, Turner Centre Kerikeri, St Andrews on the Terrace Wellington, Clarence Street Theatre Hamilton, MTG Century Theatre Napier and the Concert Chamber of the Auckland Town Hall. Audiences have said:

"Utterly blown away - exquisite violin, stunning arrangements sometimes better than the originals - wow, just wow"

“Fantastic night plus a full house and standing ovation”
