CBC News:New Brunswick soprano places second

OSLO - Measha Brueggergosman has placed second in the prestigious Queen Sonya International Music Competition in Norway. The 26-year-old soprano is a native of New Brunswick.

The Oslo event is a tuneup for the Munich International Music Competition, which takes place in September.

Brueggergosman is a graduate of the University of Toronto. In addition to her numerous musical accolades, she has recorded a jazz album with PEI's The Jive Kings.

She will tour Iceland and Finland in October as part of a Canadian Arts Commission recital tour."

I went to church with Mesha's family, her dad taught me Sunday school. I hung out with her older sister from time to time. She was the little sister who we ignored, now she's a big time diva with her wall paper. Small world.

- Peace
