One of the most fascinating and enigmatic singer/songwriters of the late '60s, Leonard Cohen developed a massive following across six decades of music-making, interrupted by various digressions into personal and creative exploration, all of which have only added to the mystique surrounding him. A master wordsmith with a voice like aged whiskey and lyrics that cut to the core of humanity, Cohen's artistry transcends generations, weaving tales of love, longing, and spirituality that continue to resonate. Denver singer and songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff joins the Colorado Symphony, blending his folk, Americana, and vintage rhythm & blues influences with Cohen’s timeless lyrics for a collaboration six decades in the making. From "Hallelujah" to "Suzanne," witness the power of songwriting to touch the deepest recesses of the soul.
Rateliff's performance will open with a set featuring Phil Cook on solo piano.
"As one of my favorite vocalists, it was an honor to pay tribute to Harry Nilsson's A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night with the Colorado Symphony last year. I am thrilled to announce that this coming spring I have the opportunity to honor one of my favorite songwriters – Leonard Cohen. I will be performing a selection of songs to showcase his life's work. I am grateful to bring this show to Colorado." - Nathaniel Rateliff
