House of Cohen
CONGREGATION EMANU-EL PRESENTS:
“THE HOUSE OF COHEN”
(A Tribute to Leonard Cohen)
Leonard Cohen was Perla Batalla’s friend, mentor, and colleague. In an homage blessed by the man himself, she brings us his remarkable music, as well as stories of her long working relationship with him. With a deep love for his music and poetry, she celebrates the man she knew; a man who was most often motivated by sly humor and absurdity rather than the doom and gloom that seem to characterize him.
In this beautiful performance, which has toured the world and will be crafted especially for Congregation Emanu-El, Batalla and her brilliant duo will be joined onstage by Cantors Marsha Attie and Arik Luck, as well as exceptional performances from within our own community.
You won’t want to miss this extraordinary evening and we know you will join us in song. Hallelujah!
“For those uninitiated to the glories of the songs of Leonard Cohen this is a wonderful introduction….for the rest of us, it is simply heavenly” – Sing Out! Magazine
“Onstage, offstage, digital or analog, I love Perla Batalla” – Leonard Cohen
