Christmas FanFair Concert

Well, it finally happened!  Someone gave me a conductors baton and put me in front of an orchestra.  The culprits were the National Arts Center Orchestra and it was for such a good cause, how could I resist?  Plentiful donations were given to the Snowsuit Fund and The Food Bank by the generous crowd that attended the concert this past Sunday afternoon.  I wish them, and all of you, a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays.

Festival On Ice

I can scratch something off my bucket list: I GOT TO SING IN HOLIDAY FESTIVAL ON ICE.

Kurt Browning, Elvis Stoiko, Jeffrey Buttle! There was no shortage of awesomeness in St John’s, Nfld a few weeks ago when we taped Holiday Festival On Ice in front of a crowd so enthusiastic that you knew, you just HAD to be in Newfoundland. So please tune it to see it TONIGHT on CBC (I don’t think I stop smiling through the whole thing.)

Holiday Festival on Ice
December 12th 8:00 pm EST / 8:30 pm NFLD

Measha presenting at the Giller prize

Hugely excited to be a presenter at the 2012 Scotiabank Giller Prize. Truth be told, it’s one of my very favourite happenings because it’s always SUCH an insane mix of people (picture Gorden Pinsent next to Jacob Hoggard next to Michael Ondaatje) and everyone is having a good ol’ sloshy, Canadian time. Not that I’ve ever been, but I kinda see it as our version of the Golden Globes: there’s a meal, there’s booze, there’s friendly betting…;-). And ALL in justifiable celebration of glorious CanLit. I honestly can’t wait.

Toronto Star Article

Spent an afternoon over chicken & waffles with the lovely and talented Richard Ouzounian. The below is the resulting article from last weekend’s Toronto Star. Thanks so much for making the trip, Richard.

My performances as Bess in Cincinnati Opera’s Porgy and Bess finish up this weekend. It’s been a total delight. I can’t wait to sing Bess again with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic this coming September!

Measha Q&A and CD signing in Cincinnati

Rehearsals at Cincinnati Opera are going gangbusters for Gershwin’s Porgy&Bess.  We had our first complete run-through last night (whew!) and our first rehearsal with the orchestra tomorrow.  My colleagues are super fun and there’s just a genuinely warmth of spirit at this company.  It’s quite fun to go to work every day – that’s not *always* the case;-). For those of you able to make the Cincy Q&A and CD signing mentioned in the article below, I look forward to meeting you! If not, I’m hopeful our paths will cross someday soon.  Stay blessed.
