The Shaw Festival announced today that An Enchanted Evening, a concert featuring soprano Measha Brueggergosman originally scheduled to take place on July 12, 2009, will now take place on August 9, 2009. Canadian jazz sensation Michael Kaeshammer and acclaimed Broadway performer and bass/baritone soloist Marcus Nance both remain on the bill for this one-night only Shaw Festival presentation.

Measha Brueggergosman, one of CanadaČ╝s most critically acclaimed vocalists, underwent open-heart surgery on June 10, 2009. She is expected to make a full and complete recovery. Hailed by the New York Times as a singer of "ravishing and smouldering intensity" and noted by the San Francisco Chronicle as ĺ─˙a singer of rare gifts and artistic intensityĺ─¨, this Canadian soprano has emerged as one of todayĺ─˘s most magnificent performers and vibrant personalities. Her album, Surprise was released in 2007 and garnered a Juno Award for Classical Album of the Year.
