Praised for her “light, fleet soprano” 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. Megan has also sung Mozart’s Requiem with the Santa Fe Desert Chorale; Bach’s St. Matthew and St. John Passions at the Staunton Music Festival; Handel’s Crudel Tiranno Amor with The Alberta Baroque Ensemble; Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate with Tucson’s St Andrew’s Bach Society; and Kurt Weil’s Seven Deadly Sins and Mahler’s 4th Symphony at the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland.
Megan sing frequently with many of the most prestigious ensembles in North America including Trinity Wall Street, The Clarion Music Society, Seraphic Fire, The American Classical Orchestra, The Santa Fe Desert Chorale, Yale Choral Artists, and Ensemble Origo.
Born and raised in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Megan now pursues an active career based in New York City. She received her MMus from Yale University and her BMus from the University of Alberta where she studied with Jolaine Kerley.
