Introduced to opera in church at a very young age, Ernestine had an early appreciation for music. She now names jazz as her favourite genre, but continues to hold a love for opera, lending her singing talents to the vocal ensemble. When she’s not performing, the mom of one can be found enjoying other wholesome pursuits – dance and exercise. The ever-active Ernestine was, after all, a star sprinter when she competed in athletics! Some of her happiest memories at the Cape Town Opera include those made on tour to Madrid and Barcelona.
