J’Nai Bridges will replace soprano Sondra Radvanovsky at Koerner Hall on July 27 due to an unfortunate and unforeseen illness.

“We wish Sondra a swift recovery and we look forward to welcoming her back to Toronto soon. We thank two-time Grammy winner J’Nai Bridges and pianist Rachael Kerr for graciously stepping in to perform in Sondra’s stead,” said Jonathan Crow, Artistic Director, in a statement.
