Measha Brueggergosman is Some Kind of Fabulous

Measha Brueggergosman marries vibrant vocals with stylish and unapologetic chutzpah.

Brueggergosman is relatively young and already an internationally celebrated opera singer. Past performances have been staged at New York's Carnegie Hall and London's Royal Albert Hall! She is only more radiant in protein and every ounce of her personality, which Brueggergosman shared at last night's Star Talks (a collaboration between the Canadian national newspaper, The Toronto Star, and the Toronto Reference Library), is personable, charming, evocative, and unquestionably authentic.

Brueggergosman spoke of the resilience and value of deep learning in musical theory, multilingualism as her passport for traveling the world, the discovery and development of her identity as a Canadian only until arriving abroad, her every intention to eventually settle in New Brunswick, racy scenes atop European stages, the sassy Christian Diors strapped from her ankles to toes, her philanthropy with the African Medical and Research Foundation, and her near-death experience post-surgery from gastrointestinal bypass.

When classical music does not hit the spot for Brueggergosman, she dabbles in popular culture. Canadian youth (myself included) continue to first stumble upon Brueggergosman through programs such as Much Music's Video on Trial, Project Runway Canada, Bravo's Star Portraits, and The Surreal Gourmet.

I look forward to attending, for my first time, a performance by Brueggergosman. Join me!
