Mr. Rieu, watching a video presentation of your his orchestra, I saw the performance of the saxophonist, Miss Sanne Mestron, and I remembered that you will be in Brazil next April, so I offer you a suggestion of a popular Brazilian music called "Carinhoso", author Pixinguinha which I believe was beautifully executed by your Orchestra and you. Happy New Year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! to you, your family, your incomparable JSO and everyone at "Team AR". What a fabulous day today, working around the house with "wall to wall" Andre on SkyArts2 - and of course, bringing in the New Year with you in Maastricht, as you and Manoe played Auld Lang Syne - how perfect! I also listened to your programme on Classic FM Radio this evening. The first hour was "ubber" romantic, as I had a power cut and listened by candle and Christmas tree lights. Thank you for all of your magical music in 2012 and keep your wonderful blue eyes sparkling in 2013. Now to unwrap your 2013 calendar.
With much, much love
Hi dear Andre,
Firstly may I wish Happy New Year to you, Marjorie and your beloved family, the JSO, Soloists and Choir and the whole wonderful Andre Rieu team that works so hard alongside you all keeping the 'show on the road'. I have to say it wouldnt seem like a proper New Year Celebration without your beautiful music and magnificent, spectacular concerts filling my house! Your wonderful uplifting music fills me full of joy and hope for the future and I love to hear your voice spinning humorous tales and see that mischievous glint in your eye when the naughty little boy that lives inside you takes over for a while! So thank you for a fantastic spectacular musical 2012 and I look forward to sharing 2013 with you all once again! Bye for now. God bless and lots of love Viv xx

You bring joy to my heart Andre. I've recorded all your concerts and am spending my new year watching them. Thank you so much to you and your orchestra for the joy you bring to the world xxxx Happy New Year to you all
Dear Andre. We saw you in Birmingham on the 18th December. Absolutely wonderful as usual. The Home for Christmas video is fabulous. It made me feel so much better as I was unwell. Can you please tell me if Marjorie is on the video, as I know she prefers to stay in the background. I wish you both, and Marc, Pierre and the lovely Grandchildren a very happy and healthy New year. I hope it won`t be too long before you come back to the UK. I will certainly be in the audience. God bless you all. with love
Dear Andre We so enjoyed your visit to Birmingham again -a wonderful show as usual ! We are watching you on SkyArts 2 at the moment, have been watching most of the day !We just want to hope you are having a wonderful time at home and to wish you and yours a very happy and healthy New Year.
Looking forward to your next visit ! Love Audrey and Gerald at Kidderminster. xxxxxxxxxxxx
I came upon Andre by chance about 3 days ago when there was nothing else to watch on tv. Sky2 Arts is a channel I never watch. Since then I have become hooked on him and WOW his shows are amazing. He puts our composers to shame - what vitality, humour and talent. And how lovely to see the audiences at every one of his shows having such great fun.
Thank God your illness this year did not put an end to your amazing dexterity.
Andre I wish you, Marjorie and your sons a great New Year and look forward to watching your continuing concerts and maybe I'll be lucky enough to see one live.
Enjoy your life - you certainly deserve everything you have.
What a beautiful photo of you for January for me to look at for the next 31 days !
It hangs just beside my computer with lots of other photos and posters.
Have a wonderful concert on New Years Eve, looking forward to pictures.
Love and Good Health to everyone

Dear Andre, Marjorie, Pierre and family and all the JSO. I am sending our very best wishes to you all for a Very Happy and Healthy 2013. Bryan and I are part way through 36 hours of Andre Rieu & the JSO on Sky Arts 2. What beautiful music and wonderful memories. Thank you all so much for the pleasure you give millions of people but especially us. Maastrict 2012 was a dream come true and with every concert I marvel that we were actually in the Vrijtof and we are booked - tickets, flights, hotel for 2013. Please give our sincere thanks to ALL involved with your concerts - soloists, musicians, choir, camera, sound etc etc. What a wonderful experience you all produce for your fans. God Bless you all.
On behalf of the members of your Polish fan-site , and all your fans that are not our members yet, I would like to wish you, and the entire orchestra a wonderful year of wealth, health, and even more success. Thank you for what you are doing, because you bring joy to soooo many people :-)
And ... we hope to see you and the JSO in Poland too :-)))
Hi Andre, I,ve had the best Christmas ever,my Christmas present from my niece was a trip to Maastricht to see you in concert,I am over the moon knowing I,m going to see you in your home town in July,but for now I wish you and your family plus orchestra a very HAPPY NEW YEAR & lots of your lovely music,love Kate .
I only had the pleasure of discovering your music and concerts this summer quite by chance and I have been enchanted with your shows since then. Your concerts on TV over Christmas have given my Mother and myself a wonderful Christmas and I thank you. I am planning to be at your concert on the 6th July with my daughter and I am very much looking forward to it. Best wishes for a very happy new year.
I wish you and all the family a very happy healthy and properous New Year. I hope you have a very good and restful Christmas with your family before starting your next round of concerts.
I am so looking forward to 2013 as I and my family are coming to Maastricht then to your concert on the 12th of July. This is my birthday and Christmas present rolled into one fabulous surprise my birthday being on the 1st of July when I will be 84 years old. Your music thrills me and if I am feeling a little out of sorts I just put one of your CD's or DVD's on and I instantly am feeling much better as your violin playing is so wonderful and the JSO enjoy themselves so much I am happy along with them.
Keep playing Andre and keep well and do not overdo it.
Love from Joan
Estimado Andre, soy de Perú, y me siento muy feliz al saludarlo, lo admiro mucho, antes yo no conocía la música clásica y gracias a usted he empezado a amarla, es un gran honor escribirle estas palabras para expresarle mi inmensa admiración, que este nuevo año lo colme de bendiciones... Un fuerte abrazo a la distancia.
