Following last week’s hometown shows at the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde, we’ve posted a series of photos of The Hallelujah Chorus, those wonderful and generous fans who contributed to Rufus’ Pledge campaign to finance the recording of Prima Donna, and were invited on stage with Rufus for their Pledge.

Have a look at the photos — from shows in London, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Montreal — here. Thanks to everyone who took part!

Join The Hallelujah Chorus In Montreal! / Faites partie de La chorale Hallelujah!

Jun 25, 2014

Earlier this year, in London, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, groups of fans joined Rufus on stage to perform “Hallelujah”, the Leonard Cohen classic that Rufus has made his own since recording it for the Shrek soundtrack more than a decade ago. Dubbed the Hallelujah Chorus, these events were exclusives offered as part of the Pledge Campaign to raise funds to record Rufus’ first opera, Prima Donna.

That campaign has come to a close (successfully!), but the opportunity to perform with Rufus during his three upcoming dates in his hometown of Montreal is still available! If you have a ticket to one of his shows at Théâtre du Nouveau Monde on June 27, 28 or 29 and you’d like to participate, please visit now to secure your spot!


Cette année, Rufus a invité plusieurs de ses fans à le rejoindre sur scène pour interpréter Hallelujah, un classique de Leonard Cohen. Ce qu’on appelle désormais la Chorale Hallelujah fait partie du Pledge Music Campaing créé pour ramasser des fonds afin de produire l’enregistrement du premier opera de Rufus, Prima Donna.

La campagne de financement a heureusement atteint son objectif mais l’opportunité de monter sur scène avec Rufus est toujours possible! Si vous avez votre billet pour un des spectacles qu’il présentera au Théâtre du Nouveau Monde les 27, 28 ou 29 juin prochains, confirmer votre présence en allant sur le site
