Canada House had the pleasure to welcome Canadian soprano artist Measha Brueggergosman, ahead of her recital at the Barbican Centre on May 8, 2019 from 7:30pm.
Born in New Brunswick, raised in Nova Scotia, Measha Brueggergosman is a great ambassador of Canadian culture whose work within the arts contributes to the advocacy for gender equality. Welcomed by Deputy High Commissioner, Sarah Fountain Smith, the pair engaged in a conversation about Measha’s upcoming performance, projects and their commonalities: motherhood and language, underscoring the importance of language and music as a tool to reach and connect different audiences.
Leading Canadian children across Canada in song, in celebration of the nationwide campaign for music education, Measha shares that “music is the perfect harmoniser (pun intended), a unifier” through which young girls and boys can learn gender equality.
Performing on May 8 at the Barbican Centre in London, an incredible arts venue with a crosscutting music programme – she will perform a song recital reflective of her incredible breadth of style, ranging from Ravel, Debussy and Duparc, Cage, Montsalvage and William Bolcom.
For the opportunity to see Measha perform live tomorrow and/or to win a signed copy of her autobiography, ‘Something is Always on Fire’, register below.
