Opera sensation Measha Brueggergosman has moved audiences around the world with her unique gifts. Among her many triumphs, she has won Juno Awards, been nominated for Grammy, sung to a teleast of over 3 billion viewers at the opening of the 2010 Olympic Games and performed solos in great concert halls.

Punctuated by a performance from Associate Concertmaster Lance Ouellette and pianist Justyna Szajna, Brueggergosman reads from her searingly honest and insightful memoir Something Is Always on Fire and shares not only her experiences with music, but also her ongoing struggle to balance her ambition for a life fully lived with the traditions and responsibilities she has committed herself to.

Please note that a limited number of tickets are available for sale at the door.
