As part of the Leonard Cohen: Une brèche en toute chose/A Crack in Everything exhibition, the MAC is pleased to announce that it will be holding a series of five concerts, based on five iconic Leonard Cohen albums, during the five months of the exhibition.

Each concert will present musicians and guest singers from Montreal who will perform a Cohen album in its entirety, in an intimate setting at Salle Gesù, in keeping with the original intention and order of the songs in the album. The series has been arranged in collaboration with POP Montréal.

A series tied-in with the concept of the MAC exhibition

Organized as an extension of the originating concept of the MAC exhibition, which is to explore the influence and impact of Leonard Cohen on artistic communities, the series reflects the MAC’s wish to offer local Montréal musicians and artists an opportunity to present their own interpretation of classic Cohen songs. The concerts are another way to pay tribute to Cohen’s artistic genius and to keep his legacy alive and contemporary.

Presented by CBC/Radio-Canada, Leonard Cohen : Une brèche en toute chose/A Crack in Everything is part of the official program for Montréal’s 375h anniversary celebrations.
