I have seen many photographs today of the VRIJTHOF and your rehearsals. The afternoon weather looked very gloomy and cold and it must be so difficult to manipulate you instruments with cold hands, but of course I know that, like you, the JSO are conscientious and committed, gifted musicians with a passion for the music. However another photo I saw this evening showed the skies having cleared a little and I'm praying the rain will stay away once it sees ‘Sun King Andre’ enter the Square! Another set of photos showed you all looking so happy and you, Andre, look stunningly fit and handsome! I hope you will have magical, joyous and exhilarating concerts with your adoring publicum who I know will have the most memorable evening of their lives! God bless and lots of love Viv xx
Hi Andre and JSO , wishing you all the best for your Maastricht concerts which begin on Friday. So looking forward to next weekend as myself and two friends will be on the Vrijthof. Delighted for you and all the team, that the concerts are a sell out, you make so many people happy with your wonderful music. See you on the 5th July. Continued success and good health.

My wonderful grand-daughter has arranged it all for my 84th birthday. I feel so fortunate. Could not wish for anything better. Flying KLM, staying at Maastricht Crowne Plaza for 2 nights, and on Saturday 6th July I really see you.

Just to wish you & and the wonderful JSO + guest artists all the best with this year's concerts at your home town of Maastricht. I'm sorry I can't be there but, hopefully, I will be in 2014. I hope the weather will be kind to you as its such a lovely setting in the Vrijthof Square. Maastricht will be an interesting city to explore when I do get there. I'm looking forward to 12th December in Nottingham when I will be near the stage and can join in the laughter, fun and happiness you create with all your concerts. Best wishes to you and to everyone involved in preparing and performing such wonderful concerts
Wonderful music Dearest Andre from La Vie Est Belle is banishing the cold an filling the heart of 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas with much happiness. The anticipation an excitement of thousands of your fans already in Maastricht awaiting tomorrow evening must be electric. Even though I am many miles away I feel a special 'Magic' in the air, great energy an a pure joy of life that's going to be enriched by the glory of your sensational music as it wafts its way through the skies when you an the wonderful JSO start to play at the Concert. There will be brilliant musicianship, tears of emotion, dancing an great happiness. The 'icing on the cake' will be the warmth of your heart Dear Man shared with the people before you. Now that's unbelievably SPECIAL. Lots of Love Lady Margaret
Just to send you, the JSO, and all your wonderful team, the very best wishes for your wonderful concerts in your home town, Maastricht.
I am very sorry that we could not be there this year.
I LOVE YOUR MUSIC SO MUCH1111
With lots of love to you all,
Hi Dear Andre
I am thinking of you and Marjorie and sending my love and best wishes to you all the for the forthcoming concerts in your lovely home town. I can't wait to be there and am so looking forward to coming to Maastricht again.
Take care and try not to overdo it but just enjoy every minute and have lots of fun.
Thank you for making so many people happy and carefree with your wonderful music.
Love to you, your family, JSO and all your wonderful team.
We had our 1st experience in Maastricht last year, loved it. So we are back again this year for Sat & Sunday concerts. We will have time to admire your beautiful hometown. Three of us travelling over from the Isle of Man.
Gura mie ayd (thank you) to you, your family, JSO , choir & everyone else involved for bringing so much happiness into our lives.
My husband and I are totally delighted with your Coronation DVD! Music is brilliant and so suitable for the occasion. We enjoyed the interview at the end and certainly realize that you all worked so very hard in a short space of time to get it all together. The stage was amazing in appearance and pictures of your wonderful new King and Queen as well as those of former Queen Beatrix were fantastic.
I have been really enjoying watching your stage evolve on the Vrijtof by means of the webcam at the Hotel Ducasque. This is fascinating!
All best wishes for the concerts in your hometown and as always, thank you for all the beautiful music and for who you are. Much love to you, Marjorie, family and JSO.
Hi dear Andre,
Only two days before your 2013 Maastricht Home Concerts begin! I thought I’d remind myself of your previous memorable Maastricht Concerts, and began with 'Under the Stars' Maastricht 5'. Andre, you never fail to amaze the world with your spectacular productions. The enormous beautiful buhne stands so tall with its Roman façade, coming alive as its flooded with light and spectacular backdrops as you and your gifted JSO strike up with the most glorious music lovingly arranged with your special magical touch: Blaze Away, Nessun Dorma, Pie Jesu, Kalinka: just a few of the beautiful melodies and who can forget your world famous and astounding 'Bolero' complete with bouncing laser lights! Not long now to Maastricht 2013, dear Maestro! Take care. God bless and lots of love Viv xx
Hope everyone enjoys the concerts in the next few weeks. I have tickets for the 5th but on the way to the airport my daughter took ill and we had to turn the taxi round and go home. There is no way we will make the concert . It has been our dream for so long to see andre in his home town and to have tickets in the best seats and not be able to use them is so heart breaking but my daughters health has to come first. So everyone really enjoy the concerts . We will be thinking of you all especially Andre and his friends but also all his fans
Hello Dear Andre, In a weeks time I will be taking to the air for the first time, I have never wanted to fly and said it would have to be someone or something pretty special to get me to fly, and you Andre fit the bill, I can't believe that on the 6th July we will be watching you on the beautiful Vrijthof in Maastricht, I wasn't surprised to read the concerts are a sell out I am pleased for you, you and everyone concerned deserve nothing less than to play to full houses, Take care Andre and enjoy the rest time in between concerts.
Love from Judy XXX in a warm Stourbridge England
Hallo Andre en iedereen in het orkest.
Morgen komen naar Nederland om het concert te zien op de Vrijthof op Vrijdag avond en we hopen maar dat het weer droog blijft. Dit concert is mijn verjaardagscadeautje van mijn echtgenoot, want Zondag word ik 70 jaar jong. We zien er ontzettend naar uit.
Groetjes uit Engeland.
Dear Andre, I can't believe it is only a week away and I will be back in Maastricht. I wish you love and joy for the 2 opening concerts and I know that everyone will have a wonderful time. I have tickets for the 5th July, and I can't wait to be sat in the Vrijthorf again, it is such a magical experience. You have a beautiful hometown and it is always a pleasure to re-visit each year. Thank you for all the amazing concerts. Much love Patricia
Dankjewel voor de prachtige muziek waar je ons mee kennis hebt laten maken.
Ben je al eens op Kasteel Amerongen geweest? Het is niet alleen een pas gerestaureerde historische locatie om te bezoeken, maar bijvoorbeeld ook zeer geschikt om een concert te geven. Het kasteel is omringd door twee grachten met daartussen een weelderige tuin. Vanuit het kasteel heb je uitzicht over de prachtige uiterwaarden, de Amerongse bovenpolder en de dijk richting Wijk bij Duurstede.
Kortom, dit mag je niet missen André.
Zeer hartelijke groeten,
Back to the cold an grey Dearest Andre but all still looks good for the weekend though 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas reads that you make contingency plans to move indoors should the weather be dreadful. Your planning an attention to detail is always superb in all that you do, you strive for perfection an achieve it because of your great love of music an beauty that goes with it. You always insure your audiences have the greatest experiences of their lives, an music played so divine an gloriously they'll be overcome with enormous emotion an pleasure. On leaving one of your Concerts the words I hear are fantastic, brilliant, magnificent the greatest violinist you'll ever hear. I just gasp in awe an wonder Precious Man at your vastly majestic talent. Lots of Love Lady Margaret.
