Praised for her “light, fleet soprano” voice and “soaring, diamantine high notes” (Opera News), Grammy- and Juno-nominated soprano Megan Chartrand feels equally at home singing early music, art song, chamber music and concert repertoire. Notable solo performances include Dalila in Handel’s Samson with the American Classical Orchestra and Mozart’s Requiem with True Concord, both in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. She has also sung Mozart’s Requiem with the Santa Fe Desert Chorale alongside Susan Graham; Bach’s St. Matthew and St. John Passions at the Staunton Music Festival; Handel’s Crudel tiranno Amor with The Alberta Baroque Ensemble; Kurt Weil’s Seven Deadly Sins at the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland, and Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate with Tucson’s St. Andrew’s Bach Society. Megan sings frequently with many of the most prestigious ensembles in North America including Le Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montréal, The Church of St. Andrew & St. Paul (Montréal), La Chapelle de Québec, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, The Clarion Music Society, The American Classical Orchestra, True Concord, The Santa Fe Desert Chorale, Yale Choral Artists, Seraphic Fire, Blue Heron, the Handel & Haydn Society, and Ensemble Origo. Megan graduated with a Masters of Music specializing in early music, oratorio, and chamber ensemble performance from the Yale University Institute of Sacred Music and Yale School of Music, where she studied with James Taylor. She also holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Alberta, where she studied with Jolaine Kerley.
