Last night another balcony concert took place in Montreal, this time with Leonard Cohen songs.\nThe virtual choirmaster was Martha Wainwright, who sang from a balcony near her Mile End café, Ursa.\nCheck out some of the videos we found of this socially distanced balcony concert.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nLast night Montrealers took to their balconies, or to the streets at a safe distance, to come together in this time of social distancing and share the gift of music with each other. After a similar balcony concert on Friday, March 20, Martha Wainwright organized a Leonard Cohen-themed singalong on Sunday night from her café and event space, Ursa Montreal. From the balcony, she sang So Long, Marianne by Leonard Cohen, followed by Le cœur est un oiseau by Richard Desjardins, with a small and spread out crowd listening from the ground below.\nElsewhere in Montreal, others also took to their balconies to sing So Long, Marianne or other Cohen songs to the empty streets below.\nPerhaps it's time to adopt a hashtag to unite all of these little events in once space online and I think that #balconyconcertMTL would be a lovely way to keep this practice up.\nIt looks like we're going to have to be happy with balcony concerts for the foreseeable future, with new rules coming from the federal and provincial government in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.\nMartha Wainwright, sister to Rufus and daughter of Loudon, was Montreal's virtual choirmaster last night, performing So Long Marianne first, followed by Le cœur est un oiseau by Richard Desjardins.\nAlone Together - Martha Wainwright, en direct du balconPosted by URSA mtl on Sunday, March 22, 2020\nA town in #Montreal #Quebec singing Leonard Cohen ❤🇨🇦🔥 F🖕ck The #coronavirus 🔥 #COVIDー19 #SocialDistancing pic.twitter.com/w0C5wn6ZJd— Frank Jofo (@frankjofo) March 23, 2020\nElsewhere in Montreal, others could also be seen and heard on their balconies singing "so long," to Marianne.\nREAD ALSO: A New Walk-In Clinic For COVID-19 Testing Is Now Open In Downtown Montreal\nNear the Cohen mural, a couple souls could be heard singing into the night, though it certainly wasn't the booming concert we hoped to see... or deserve!\nLeonard Cohen songs being sung on Crescent St. tonight in (ghost town) Montreal. #mtlmoments #Montreal #COVIDー19 #caremongering #StayAtHome #balconychallenge #solongmarianne #SocialDistancing #LeonardCohen #balconville pic.twitter.com/4ldd1uzyuA— Susan Ferguson (@SueCFerg) March 23, 2020\nWhich is fine. We're still getting used to this whole balcony concert thing.\nMontrealers are far more adept at playing impromptu concerts in the park, so we're going to need a little practice.\nView this post on Instagram your throat A post shared by Michael Belcher (@mikeybelcher) on Mar 22, 2020 at 5:15pm PDT\nBut considering we're likely got another month or so of this distanced life ahead, I think we're going to see a lot more balcony parties as the weather gets warmer.\nWhich means you've got lots of time to practice your singing and find your perfect tune.\nTo be honest, Cohen is tricky to sing ever for a seasoned vocalist... so don't be afraid to just go ahead with your go-to karaoke track next time.\nView this post on Instagram #leonardcohen so,long marriane #event A post shared by Fouâd Oveisy (@consul_general) on Mar 22, 2020 at 5:28pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram Leonard Cohen from my balcony (and my loneliness) #solongmarianne #mtl #mtlmoments #leonardcohen #montreal #singalong #covıd19 #coronavirus #stayhome #staysafe #restezchezvous A post shared by Marianne BR (@moushline) on Mar 22, 2020 at 5:14pm PDT\nOr do like the Montrealer above and bring some back up to sing along with you.\nThis isn't about perfection, it's about continuing to be Montreal even when it looks and feels like a very different place.\nBut in a city full of so many artists (and so many balconies) I'm looking forward to whatever balcony concert we get next.\nView this post on Instagram So Long, Marianne balcony singalong in Montréal. #solongmarianne #montrealsingalong #ursamtl #leonardcohen #leonardcohensingalong #balconville #popmtl A post shared by Linda (@sophistikitten) on Mar 22, 2020 at 5:26pm PDT\nIf you do decide to throw a little balcony concert, use the hashtag #balconyconcertMTL on Twitter or Instagram or wherever you share your video, tag us @mtlblog, and maybe we'll feature it in our next compilation.\nUntil then, keeping singing Montreal.
