We are very excited to announce the return of Conspiracy of Beards to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Jersey City the first weekend of May 2015. A San Francisco based a cappella choir of 30 men, Conspiracy of Beards performs dynamic, original arrangements of the poetic songs of Leonard Cohen in 4- and 5-part harmony. This will be the choir’s 7th annual NYC tour and their 12th season performing both classic and more obscure Leonard Cohen songs.

 

Well dressed in suits, ties, and the occasional fedora, the choir brings an energized live choral music experience out of churches and tabernacles and into the taverns, art houses, and theaters of the West Coast and beyond. Transforming Cohen’s lyrics and simple melodies into complex 4- and 5-part harmonies, Conspiracy of Beards achieves a sound that is both robust and tender, exposing the emotion and comedy behind Cohen’s words. This is not a Leonard Cohen tribute choir, but a unique and powerful elaboration of Cohen’s lyrical and musical expression.

 

Formed in 2003 through the inspiration of the late San Francisco performance artist Peter Kadyk, friend and composer Daryl Henline gathered a small group of friends to learn and sing a couple of Leonard Cohen songs as a tribute to Peter. Since then the choir has grown to over 30 members.

 

 

The choir will be supported by Daniel Kahn, a Berlin based singer/songwriter whose music has been called “Alienation-Klezmer”, mixing in elements of punk, folk, cabaret, and jazz. Daniel will perform with an ensemble.
