    Dear Andre,

    You and your orchestra always hit the right spot. You have had your distress with the loss of dear Ruud which has brought sadness to us all. But you have continued with the most beautiful music in the world. And what makes it so special is your orchestra, which is like a family. The fact that you all remain together for many years is a tribute to your talent and charisma. The whole ensemble brings me immense joy and uplifts my spirit. There is hardly a day goes by without this wonderful medicine. Mostly it is in the form of a CD or DVD which is inferior to seeing you all on the stage but is a very good second best.

    The talent and beauty of your orchestra is wonderful. Your faces are alight with joy as you perform and this makes it so special.

    I cannot adequately express my heartfelt gratitude for what you have done for me over the years.

    I wish you and your beautiful orchestra good health and success both now and the time ahead.

    With love to you all,
    Peter Keen

    Dear Andre, to see you in concert in your very own beautiful Maastricht has been on my ‘bucket list’ for years. At the grand young age of 72 i made a New Years resolution that 2018 was the year. I then joined ‘trusted house/pet sitting for UK/Europe and lo and behold I will be in your home town in July to fullfill my dream and my new challenges. Can’t wait to see you. Keep smiling as always – I wish you and your lovely family well – whoopee! Yvonne, Perth, W.Australia.

    Dear Andre,

    Your brilliant concerts have been an inspiration to us as a family these past few years.

    Particularly so in the case of our 9-year-old daughter Shanaia Vasquez Brady, who is a Soloist Soprano Singer trained in Classical by her Music Teacher mother and who has been performing in public for the past three years.

    SHANAIA dreams of one day becoming a full time professional performer and joining your entourage of Soloist Soprano Singers.

    SHANAIA’S current repertoire of Classical and Broadway songs include: “O Mio Babbino Caro”, “Nessun Dorma”, “Ave Maria” by Schubert; “I Dreamed a Dream”; “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”; “Think of Me”; “The Prayer”; “Climb Every Mountain”; “Panis Angelicus”; “Nella Fantasia”; and “O Sole Mio”;

    The following is a link to SHANAIA’S YouTube Account: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5FtLZLlMAkSFoHrndRvzsw/videos?disable_polymer=1

    Shanaia was so pleased to have met her idol and your former leading Soprano Singer Mirusia Louwerse in person and sung on stage with her earlier this year, 2018.

    We have written to Mr. Rieu and asked if he would take time to preview SHANAIA’S performance on YouTube, in the same way that he did for SHANAIA’S idol, MIRUSIA LOUWERSE.

    Thank you once again and we look forward to your arrival here in Australia in November 2018.

    Andre Rieu Extravaganza in Maastricht has been on my wifes and my bucket list for the last 8 years. We have seen your show twice live in Phoenix AZ and once one a live telecast from your show.
    We attended the concert in Maastricht yesterday July 6 2018 and it was magical.

    However I felt a little disappointed in your selection. You are after all the Johann Strauss Orchestra and yet you played only one waltz – The Blue Danube. I traveled from the USA to hear these waltzes and I was disappointed you did not play the Second Waltz, Die Fledermaus, Roses Du Sud and of course Bolero. Thats what we came to hear. I am not sure if I will have another opportunity of seeing you live again in Maastricht so will have to be content with the CD and to picture you in my mind.

    Once again thank you for the wonderful music.

    Just home after a fantastic evening listening to wonderful music at Cineworld Aberdeen. I was moved to tears when you said Manoe had breast cancer ten years ago. This brought it really home to me as I have cancer plus 4 other serious illnesses and had thought of giving up but when Manoe played Highland Cathedral on the bagpipes and was accompanied by the pipes and drums and you said she had fought her cancer to come back and play in the orchestra that has really made me think that I have to keep on fighting however hard it is. You also said that whatever fate has dealt you music will see you through. I totally agree as I have always had a great love of music. Also my strong faith in God will also see me through. Thank you Andre for your inspiring words and music tonight.

    Dear André Rieu,
    I have been following your work since I was a little girl, watching your amazing performances. This Christmas I watched in the cinema your performance in Sydney and I loved it, I would love to see and to live one of your performance in person.
    Please keep in your mind Barcelona, Spain, for your next tour.
    Thanks a lot for sharing your work with the world.
