The world’s most successful and best selling soprano SARAH BRIGHTMAN will bring her HYMN: Sarah Brightman In Concert Tour to Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver on March 18, 2019.

Brightman will also unveil her much anticipated fifteenth full-length album, Hymn, on November 9, 2018 (Decca Gold/ Universal). This marks the multiplatinum GRAMMY® award-nominated classical crossover pioneer’s first new studio recording since she released the international chart-topper Dreamchaser in 2013. Brightman returned to the recording studio in 2016, to begin working on Hymn with long time producer and collaborator Frank Peterson.

The result is the spiritually themed Hymn — an inspirational collection of orchestrated, choir-based songs that Brightman says felt soothing to record. Hymn, was recorded over the past two years in Hamburg, Miami, London, Vancouver, Los Angeles, New York, and Budapest.

Brightman says fans should “expect the unexpected!”
