Montreal – Sylvie joins tributes to Leonard Cohen

7b Our lady of the harbourMontreal has organized a variety of  artistic and musical events across the city in November, paying tribute to Leonard Cohen on the first anniversary of his death, ranging from a concert at the Bell Centre headlined by Elvis Costello, a building-sized muralof Cohen in his famous fedora, and a major multi-media exhibition at MAC (Musee D’Art Contemporain/Museum of Contemporary Art).

From 6th, when the exhibition opens, until 9th November, the art museum will also feature various staged events. These include panels, round-tables and on-stage interviews on the subject of Leonard Cohen, his life and his work.

Sylvie will be appearing in several events, in English and in French, and will separately be doing TV and radio interviews in English and in French, sometimes alone, sometimes accompanied by Elisabeth Domergue and Francois Vella, the two women who translated  the French-Canadian new edition of I’m Your Man: the Life of Leonard Cohen.

In addition, Sylvie will do an event at the Librairie Gallimard, a bookshop near Leonard Cohen’s Montreal home, where there will be songs (in English) and readings (in French). She will also sing with Canadian Americana singer-songwriter L’il Andy at a private concert for the Leonard Cohen Files Forum, many of whom have traveled from Europe for the tribute event, at the Chapel de Notre-Dame de Bon Secours, its building topped by the statue of ‘Our lady of the harbour’ that appears in Leonard Cohen’s famous song “Suzanne.”
