Came so Far Tilt

With This eclectic all-star line-up of performers celebrating the legendary poet and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen is the concert event of the year.

A host of special guest performers celebrate Canadian poet/songwriter extraordinaire Leonard Cohen with interpretations of his music and writing in a spectacular concert. Visionary music producer Hal Willner presides over the proceedings with his signature off-kilter genius for curating live shows.

Former Lounge Lizard Steve Bernstein leads musicians who have worked at the top from Beck to Jeff Buckley and Cassandra Wilson to Nora Jones. This constellation of creative excellence is a testament to Cohen's enduring influence.

With 25 singers and musicians performing Willner’s selections from Cohen’s total canon, Came So Far For Beauty is nothing less than musical heaven.

Hal Willner's Came So Far For Beauty - An Evening of Leonard Cohen Songs was originally commissioned in 2003 by the Celebrate Brooklyn Performing Arts Festival with support from the Canadian Consulate General New York.
