Conspiracy of Beards Take Berlin – 2017 European Tour

May 26 @ 2:00 am - June 3 @ 2:00 pm

We are planning our first-ever European tour in June of 2017, and need your help to get there! https://www.gofundme.com/beards-berlin

We are the Conspiracy of Beards, a choir of 30 men conspiring to sing the songs of Leonard Cohen in 5-part harmony.

Leonard wrote, “First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin,” and gave us the vision to bring this music to the land of cabarets and underground art festivals. Some of the most passionate Cohen fans are in Europe, and we have long dreamed of performing for them. We are scheduled to perform at Berlin’s beautiful Maxim Gorki Theater on June 4th, and are currently booking other shows in and around Germany.

This live performance at KPFA provides a sense of what we are about: https://youtu.be/Z-HzmHcXsEY

Why are we doing this?

With Mr. Cohen’s recent passing, interest in his music and message have never been greater . Fans both long-time and brand new are discovering much to love and learn from his talent for touching the human heart.

We want to share Leonard Cohen’s vision of open artistic expression, spiritual reflection, and unity with the world. We hope to serve as cultural ambassadors for all that is beautiful about the United States and the Bay Area.

Why do we need your help?

Transporting 30 singers to the Old World is a daunting prospect, but with your help we can make it happen.
