Choir! Choir! Choir! - Rufus Wainwright leads 1,500-voice choir in Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah / Toronto Life

Bookmark and Share

You might remember Choir! Choir! Choir! as the gang of singers that invaded Massey Hall for a tribute to Prince. Or the chorus that took over the AGO to cover "Space Oddity" after David Bowie's death. They're at it again-and, thankfully, no legendary musician had to die this time. During the Luminato Festival, leaders Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman invited cabaret crooner Rufus Wainwright to lead their rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" in the cavernous Hearn Generating Station, featuring a 1,500-person choir (that just so happens to include former Governor General Adrienne Clarkson).
