Leonard Cohen: In Words and Music

Event

Remember students, staff and alumni get a discount on PRIZMA courses!

Join us for an overview of Leonard Cohen’s work and journey.

Gain an understanding of the greater cultural context of the writers of the beat generation, folk singers in the US, the turbulence of the 1960s, Québec's Quiet Revolution, modernism and postmodernism, and the Cold War; all through Leonard Cohen’s work. You will learn all about the emergence of the young McGill poet and his position as an outsider in his community. The focus will then shift from the writer to the acclaimed singer, composer, and songwriter that he became when he turned to performance and recording.

Note the event date listed above is for the first class. The course runs from October 16 - November 20, 2017. Learn more about the course here: http://ow.ly/pCWx30euskg
