André Rieu in Baltimore ~ Cute Story

Andre's Baltimore Concert

I couldn't hear too well what this woman was saying from where I was sitting, but I did speak to her when exiting the hall. She interchanged with Andre twice in the first half and the second half. I think she used to play the violin and Andre did not seem annoyed at all, in fact this lady was the life of the party I thought. Earlier Andre was playing with her as she was waiting to come to her seat. She stood to the side not wanting to walk in front of Andre. He motioned to her and her husband to come and sit down.
Andre said, "it’s okay look there are two seats right there", they were actually sitting in the first few rows in the front . So, all the attention was on her and her husband as they were sitting down and Andre seemed to enjoy the diversion. While the dialogue was going on between her and Andre, she mentioned she loved to dance. Then she pointed to the gentleman next to her (her husband) referring that he couldn't dance. At that moment all the attention was on her and Andre. The audience responded with laughter.

After intermission at some point she walked over to the stage and again dialogued with Andre about her violin and that's what's happening in the picture shown. We could not hear what was being said, but whatever she was saying Andre was responding to her with "um hum". He let her speak, but it also seemed it was time for her to sit down so he could move on with the show, she again went back to her seat and sat down of course. When playing the Blue Danube another gentleman came over to her and asked her to dance and when she got up to dance with him there was an audience applause. It was quite cute …she was having fun and this was her very first live concert! She said she never leaves home but that night she did, and what a night she had! ~ Martha S.

Hi Martha, what a cute story - I love it!! When I get older maybe I can walk up there and tell Andre about my violin! That was so nice of him to talk with her and that was her first concert, bless her heart. Thanks for the great photos and story.
Love,

Hello dear Martha,
What I like in this Baltimore report is just the description of the talk of the woman with Andre on stage. What you wrote is that Andre had all the time for the woman.
It says everything how Andre love his fans. He has a great heart and shows respect....that's class.
Thank you, Arie

I agree with Ari one hundred percent. You wonder about the man behind the artist, obviously he lives and performs on a philosophy of "love". But then again isn't that the golden rule of life that can be applied to every endeavor and especially concertizing? It's what I've learned through my experience with Andre's concerts.

Jeanine....I'll take your picture and tell your story too.

Martha :)

Hi Martha! Greetings from Baltimore!

My daughter and I were at the Baltimore concert and ran into the little old lady as we were making our way to the car. She was standing in the parking lot peering over the low wall, gazing hopefully at Rieu 1.

I would love to meet other Andre fans here in Baltimore as I am new to the area. Please drop me a line.
