Conspiracy of Beards | A Choir of Men Sing Leonard Cohen Return to Los Angeles with Special Guest Singer/Songwriter & Cohen Biographer Sylvie Simmons April 17, 2016
Conspiracy of Beards, a San Francisco based choir of 30 men that sing exclusively the poetic songs of Leonard Cohen in 4- and 5-part a cappella harmony, will finally return to Los Angeles after a long 5 year hiatus. Now in their 13th season, the choir brings an energized live choral music experience out of churches and tabernacles and into the taverns, art houses, and theaters. Directed by Bay Area composer, Daryl Henline, this group of dapper men conspire to capture all of the emotion and humor of Leonard Cohen’s original music with their dynamic, original arrangements and expressive stage presence. They are stewards of Cohen’s words. Conspiracy of Beards will be joined for part of the tour by singer/songwriter, and Leonard Cohen biographer, Sylvie Simmons.
