Measha Brueggergosman-Lee

Artist-in-Residence | Music

As the recipient of the 2024 Governor General’s Award for Lifetime Achievement in classical music, Fredericton-born Soprano Measha Brueggergosman-Lee’s engaging personality, exceptional musicianship and powerful voice have taken her to the major orchestras and concert halls of every continent, as well as the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill, and a Royal Command Performance for Queen Elizabeth II. Measha has been an enthusiastic advocate for music education and in her bestselling memoir, Something Is Always On Fire: My Life So Far (HarperCollins, 2017), Measha credits her early public school music education as setting her on a decades-long career trajectory that has taught her the value of teaching and of being teachable.
