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. Chartrand has also sung Bach’s St. Matthew and St. John Passions at the Staunton Music Festival; 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 has sung frequently with many of the most prestigious ensembles in North America including The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, The Clarion Music Society, The American Classical Orchestra, True Concord, The Santa Fe Desert Chorale, Seraphic Fire, and Blue Heron. She is currently based in Montréal where she performs with the A&P Choir, SMAM, Les Rugissants, and La Chapelle de Québec.
Megan graduated with a Master of Music specializing in early music and chamber ensemble performance from the Yale University Institute of Sacred Music. She also holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Alberta.
