A SINGER MUST DIE

The Words and Music of Leonard Cohen

We've assembled a group of artists - singers, authors, and musicians alike - with profound love and respect for Leonard Cohen's work to pay tribute to his legacy.

Singers Steven Page, Sarah Harmer, Sarah Slean, Tom Wilson, and Gregory Hoskins will perform Cohen's songs in arrangements by top Canadian composers, and a rotating cast of writers will share personal anecdotes.
