Internationally reckoned musician and expert, John Roos, one of South Africa’s giants in classical music circles and former Director of the Unisa Music Foundation, recently passed away.
“It was an honour and privilege to have known this humble man personally”, says Hannie Hefer.
In his own words:
“I would definitely choose a career in music again if I had to travel back in time. Music took me to very interesting destinations around the globe, where I met fascinating people and made new friends while enjoying the exhilarating performances of some of the best young musicians in the world.”
