An Interview With André Rieu Soloist Mirusia Louwerse

AN INTERVIEW WITH MIRUSIA 

October 10, 2010 Mirusia Louwerse is a 25 year old Aussie soprano who was born and raised in Brisbane. She is currently working with world renowned violinist Andre Rieu, and took some time out to help us get to know her a little better in the lead up to the release of her first solo album “Always & Forever”.
I started training singing Country and Pop music when I was 12. I was doing Ju-Jitsu and my dad gave me a choice, Ju-Jitsu or singing lessons. When he suggested singing lessons I got butterflies in my stomach and straight away couldn’t think of anything else. Ju-Jitsu didn’t matter to me anymore! The first song I ever sang in the singing lessons was “The Greatest Love of All”. I still have the recording …

What a wonderful interview. Is this published in an Australian or American magazine?

In reply to InekeHolland. This was published in an Australian magazine.(OnLine only ??) Mirusia is currently back home and is also using the opportunity to promote her new CD which has just been released. I just bought one in a shop today.

Mirusia's new CD "Always and Forever" is available in the shops in Australia. Anybody who is keen to obtain it may also be able to download from http://www.getmusic.com.au/store/artist/music/detail.aspx?pid=68341&aid=13777
I bought a physical copy from a shop so I have not tried this.

What a wonderful article.
Also enjoyed the great comments about Carmen, who has been a favorite since I first heard her on the "Dublin" DVD back in 2003 (when Andre came over here to promote in the Trenton, NJ PBS station on August 9th.)
I chatted with both girlso at our hotel in Atlantic City last June 19, and you could tell they are best friends. I also remember seeing the two of them in Maastricht several years ago, walking from the Vrijthof to the "theater" where they have the after party nightly. They were walking hand in hand...sort of like big and little sisters and you could see that Carmen was "taking care of her", as it was Mirusia's first experience performing at the Vrijthof concerts. That night both John and Ruud took pictures of us women with the girls.
Nice memories.
