André’s bronze sculpture.

Would you like to know where André’s bronze sculpture has gone??

We wrote a short “history”about the roaming sculpture and where it has been since since 2009. We even feared a beheading of the sculpture in 2013….

10 year old Amira sings with André and the JSO

Earlier this year the (then) 9 year old Amira Willighagen won the ‘Holland’s Got Talent’ show, flabbergasting the jury members. Normally children of this age will sing a song from Beyoncé or Madonna, but Amira chose an aria from an opera. Click on the picture to watch this performance.


It is now confirmed that Susan and Howard Horder are among the victims of the Malaysian Airways flight MH017 crash in Ukraine.

They were returning from Maastricht to their home in Australia.

We are so sad. They will be missed by all of us.

Sunday July 13, Lift-Off Concert

A few years ago, Marcel Falize formed the group Lift-Off. This band consists of the Falize family and friends. Having a Lift-Off concert during the Rieu Maastricht period is normally not possible, but due to the finals of the World Championship Soccer, there was no Rieu concert on Sunday July 13.

Time for a Lift-Off concert! Two busses with Rieu fans traveled from Maastricht to Heerlen to attend this wonderful concert. Click on the picture to watch a video impression of this concert.
