ENJOY an evening of fine classical music in the company of three special artists from the Upper Highway area, Annalie Herbst-van Rooyen (opera singer) accompanied by Priscilla Crundwell and Count Filip Kormuth on 26 May at 6.30pm at Longmynd Art Gallery, 24 Old Main Road, Hillcrest.

Speaking to the Fever about her love for music and the concert Herbst-van Rooyen said: “I have always dreamed about being an opera singer and when my eldest daughter was born I started singing lessons with a couple of our country's best singing coaches,” she said.

“I have sung in numerous concerts with established classical as well as contemporary music artists in the Cape. My eldest daughter is now turning 17 and I am still singing.”

Herbst-van Rooyen said she sings to bring people joy.

“I choose exquisite music to help people forget about their worries and just bask in the beauty of the moment. Through my music I would like to inspire people to take up a long lost dream or passion and start developing it again.

“My ambition is not to be famous, but to enjoy my singing and help people and animals through it.” She said she often does charity concerts like her last one in March for the Siya Jabula children’s centre in Molweni.

“With the concert money they were able to expand the kitchen, which was a huge help for them.”

“For the Longmynd concert I have chosen to support a charity from my daughter's school. Curro Hillcrest is doing a fund-raiser, which a couple of charities will benefit from.”

Tickets are R100 for adults and R50 for children and can be bought at the door on the night or during the day prior to the evening.
