André Rieu Looking For 300 Brass Players in Maastricht

ROERMOND (ANP) - André Rieu is looking for Three Hundred Brass Players. They would perform with the violinist during his concerts on the Vrijthof in Maastricht from 10 through 14 July. This announcement was made by the Limburg Federation of Music (LBM) on Thursday.

The intent is that the Three Hundred Musicians will play along on their brass instruments with Rieu's Orchestra from opened windows around the Vrijthof. The Limburg Federation of Music has started the recruitment of brass players, whose dream it is to play along with the famous orchestra.

July is the month of Brass Music (including the World Music Contest in Kerkrade). Rieu wants to show the whole world that (amateur) Brass Music is very much alive in Limburg.

A DVD of The Concerts Will Be Made To Be Available At a Later Date.

Thank You to Ineke for this and John Translating it for us!

How exciting.
My 17-year-old grandson is a fantastic trumpet player and I might volunteer him. He will be at the Detroit concert and maybe he could audition for Andre. Not too serious, but I'm sure it would be the thrill of a lifetime!

This sounds so exciting. Andre never fails to come up with great new ideas and this should be one of the best!

We have to thank Benny Geets for the article. He lives in Belgium but he is very alert to Dutch newspaper articles. He sends them to me and I forward it to John. John translates and Sue and Jann post them on the website. A very good hot newsline!! Thanks Benny!
