Frank Steijns Father Passes Away

Saturday, 23 February 2008

Mathieu Steijns

The old city beiaardier (carillon player) of Maastricht, Mathieu Steijns has passed away on 21 February 2008. Steijns, who played for almost forty years, is the father of the current city carillon player, Frank Steijns. (Frank is also a violin player in André Rieu's Johann Strauß Orchestra)
The funeral services will take place in the Saint Servaas Basilica, to which he was also connected as carillon player, on Wednesday.
During his life, Steijns was a carillon player in several Limburg cities/towns. In addition, he was also conductor for the Maastricht Men's Choir.

I am sure we all would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Frank, and the entire Steijns family for their loss, and hope they will find strength in the nice memories they have of Mathieu.

It's so sad to learn that another great man from Maastricht passed away soon after Benny's funeral. I hope Frank would be strong and continue to play his music in the best way he could. I'm sure his father would always be proud of him. Take Care, Frank!!

Our thoughts are with Frank and his family. We wish them strenght. I wonder if Frank will play the carillion of the Saint Servaas basilica during the service.

My sympathies also to Frank and his family. Thanks, John for this information from Maastricht. I also was wondering if Frank would play the carillon for the service.
