The Music of Leonard Cohen. A Journey – 1967 to 2016
Imperfect Offering is delighted to perform at the Ascension Wine Estate once again in a concert of the music of Leonard Cohen, tracing a journey from 1967 to 2016.
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, Q Theatre Auckland City, St Andrews on the Terrace Wellington, Meteor 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”
