Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman, rapper Chuck D, and the National Ballet of Canada are among the performers added to a slew of free events planned during the Toronto International Film Festival.

Brueggergosman will host an opening night concert by DJ Champion, rapper Chuck D will host and perform at the closing night party, and the National Ballet of Canada will preview a new piece choreographed by Aszure Barton.


The daily events conclude with a free movie screening of the people’s choice winner at the Elgin Theatre on the festival’s closing night.

The festival runs Sept. 10 to 19.
