It was a big surprise that the manager of the “Your Market Booth” shop, announced another “Meet and Greet” by soprano Anna Majchrzak on the last concert day: Saturday July 22nd, at 2.30 PM. From Facebook: “Anna Majchrzak, born in The Netherlands with a Dutch mother and a Polish father, has felt her calling already in the very early days of her childhood. She developed her musical skills in a broad way to connect to the Dutch market of question and demand before she came to work with André Rieu. Here Anna felt that her inner calling could be heard and so she is blooming inside and out for which she offers her sincere gratitude to you, André's audience! More: Anna is always drawn to the inner world of feeling, dreaming, imagination and is drawn to the outer world by the beauty of music. Between those worlds is where she wants to stand, as a translator between the dreams and imaginations of the creative composers, and the audible result of it. In order to share of the Love and Richness that lays in the inner world of the endless potential, Anna has taken the highest education possible in The Netherlands as a classical opera singer, while traveling the world for masterclasses and experience. And she has the desire to always continue her education by life experience and interaction with likeminded colleagues and people.”
