Sherbrooke Record - - TALK - Record Staff

Per­form­ing artists Pa­trizia Ames and Richard Bull will present ‘Songs from Leonard Cohen’, a con­cert to raise funds for the CHUS Foun­da­tion on Fri­day, Nov.23 at the Granada Theatre.

The pro­ceeds from the event will be ded­i­cated to the chil­dren's im­mune dis­ease re­search of the CHUS.

The CHUS Foun­da­tion acts as a priv­i­leged part­ner in the ad­vance­ment and de­vel­op­ment of Hôpi­tal Fleu­ri­mont and Hô­tel-dieu de Sher­brooke. Their mis­sion is to con­trib­ute to the ex­cel­lence of care and ser­vices mainly through the ac­qui­si­tion of med­i­cal equip­ment and sup­port­ing med­i­cal re­search.

The Record is proud to part­ner with the ben­e­fit con­cert « Songs from Leonard Cohen » for CHUS Foun­da­tion. What a bet­ter way to spend an evening than with the songs of the mas­ter poet Leonard Cohen. Lay­ered with pre­ci­sion, they reach deep into the heart of our hu­man ex­pe­ri­ence. per­form­ing artists Pa­trizia Ames and Richard Bull met be­tween Dover and Os­tend on a Septem­ber's night across the English Chan­nel. The euro­tun­nel did not ex­ist then. It was an­other cen­tury, an­other mil­len­nium. She was 20 years old from Ger­many and he was 21 from Canada. They stuck to­gether for bet­ter and for worst and have been car­ry­ing their voices, their po­etry, their mu­sic from Mon­treal to New York via Europe. It was be­tween Toronto and Mon­treal, more pre­cisely in Kingston that they met the mas­ter-poet Leonard Cohen. The mo­ment was magic. The bells rang, the birds sang. They told Pa­trizia and Richard to carry with hu­mil­ity and ten­der­ness the mas­ter's songs on the chiaroscuro path of life.

Don't miss this con­cert embed­ded with sweet­ness and filled with sen­su­al­ity and re­demp­tion.

The Granada Theatre on Novem­ber 23, the night of the full moon, will be an evening to re­mem­ber.
