Mezzo-soprano - United States
Widely praised for her musical intelligence and “expressive virtuosity”(San Francisco Chronicle), Meg Bragle is quickly earning an international reputation as one of today’s most gifted mezzo-sopranos.
As a featured soloist with Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the English Baroque Soloists, she has made four recordings with the group, including Bach’s Easter and Ascension Oratorios – the vehicle for her BBC Proms debut − and the recently released Bach Mass in B Minor. She has performed as soloist in North America and Europe with many of the world's premiere early music ensembles: the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, English Baroque Soloists, Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Les Violons du Roy, Apollo’s Fire, Netherlands Bach Society, Arion Baroque Orchestra and the Dunedin Consort.
Recent orchestral highlights in the U.S. and Canada include engagements with the Houston, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Pacific, and Colorado Symphonies; the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the National Arts Center Orchestra and Calgary Philharmonic.
Among Ms. Bragle's 2017/18 season highlights are appearances with the Netherlands Bach Society, Cincinnati Symphony, Tempesta di Mare, Lansing Symphony, Atlanta Baroque and Music of the Baroque.
