Measha Brueggergosman @ The Isabel (All Ages)

Wednesday, March 29th @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

$18

Superstar soprano Measha Brueggergosman explores her African heritage & the powerful music born by the hard path from slavery to freedom. Measha performs an intensely powerful and spiritual collection of ‘Freedom Songs’ that emerged from Africa via the slave trade to America, then to Canada via the United Empire Loyalist migration and the Underground Railroad.

“My exploration of African-American spirituals is a way for me to challenge my classically trained mind. It is helping me to become a better musician. But there is another reason why spirituals are so important to me. I wanted to explore this repertoire because it’s dear to my heart. These spirituals are close to my Christian faith. They are also a very important part of my family’s history. It is the music of my people. My ancestors were stolen from Africa and sold into slavery in the United States before finding freedom in Nova Scotia.”
