Critically acclaimed Canadian soprano, Measha Brueggergosman, is deeply committed to the art of song. The radiant singer is a superb master of her instrument and possesses an extraordinary versatility and intuitive musicality that is a rare gift.
Songs of Freedom, a stunning stylistic blend of personal quest and historical documentary, is Measha’s emotional, spiritual, and musical journey through the turbulent chapters of North American history. Her performance of an intensely powerful collection of freedom songs during Black History Month, including Amazing Grace, Swing Low Sweet Chariot, and Go Tell It on the Mountain, comprise the extremely personal soundtrack to her ancestry.
