Measha Brueggergosman in recital

Measha Brueggergosman 2018 singing on stage with pianist

The Canadian soprano presents a song recital that ranges from Ravel to John Cage – music as varied and as characterful as her own ‘wonderful’ (The New York Times) voice. 

Measha Brueggergosman is an artist who positively enjoys defying expectations: a multi-award winning classical soprano who is equally at home mentoring the next generation of vocal stars on Canada’s Got Talent as performing in the concert hall. 

Hot on the heels of her acclaimed performance in Dead Man Walking at the Barbican, starring alongside Joyce DiDonato, this solo recital is typical of Measha's incredible breadth of style. After opening with mélodies from the perfumed, infinitely refined world of Ravel, Debussy and Duparc, Measha turns in the second half to music by Cage, Montsalvage and William Bolcom. This recital is a compelling self-portrait of a singer whose ‘nuance and force of personality’ (The New York Times).

The performance is expected to finish around 9.20pm, including a 20 minute interval.
