The Filberg Summer Cncert Series opens July 2 with Tower of Song

Tower of Song: A tribute to Cohen at Filberg Park

Filberg Park Summer Concert Series kicks off on Thursday, July 2

The 2015 Filberg Park Summer Concert Series kicks off on Thursday, July 2 with the critically acclaimed Tower of Song.

Tower of Song is a creative tribute to the music of the legendary Leonard Cohen, presented by two celebrated B.C. singers and songwriters: Oliver Swain and Glenna Garramone.

Be prepared for a night of rare and classic selections from the Leonard Cohen cannon fearlessly interpreted by these artists and celebrating Canada’s greatest bard and his profound influence on modern songwriting.

Tower of Song serves up Cohen’s timeless songs arranged for two voices, banjo, string bass, piano and guitar. Swain and Garramone have crafted vocal arrangements of the great works of Cohen that will satiate and astonish the die-hard Cohen fan in everyone. After several sold-out shows on Vancouver Island, Tower of Song continues to expand their geographical range to put “more power in the tower.”

Tower of Song performed to packed houses in Comox back in the spring of 2014. Don’t miss this very special return engagement.

A very special menu will be available at Tria Fine Catering & Gourmet Eats at the Tea House for all the concert events. Or you can call ahead and order a takeout picnic basket.

Tickets are available now at Long and McQuade in Courtenay and Blue Heron Books in Comox or online at filberg.com.

Shows starts at 7. Kids 12 and under are admitted free. Bring a blanket or use a chair provided. Festival style enjoyment is very welcome.

The annual Filberg Summer Concert Series is a fundraiser for the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park and features four concerts over the summer all in the stunningly beautiful Filberg Park in Comox. To find out more visit www.filberg.com
