Seekers Sing Song as Tribute To André Rieu


ANDRÉ RIEU LOVES FRANK'S SONG
Seeker to Sing Frank Howson's Song André
A song put together by Melbourne writer Frank Howson looks likely to be performed at international violinist André Rieu's Concert here in May. Frank's Song appears set to be performed by Judith Durham of 'The Seeker's' who are guest artists on the program.
The song André, is based on an award winning poem that Frank wrote when he lived in the United States. Judith Durnham will perform a new version of the song re-written as a tribute to André Rieu at the concerts.
The original song was a tribute to a boy, Georges André Cohn dying in the Holocaust. It was inspired by a visit to the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles and published in Under Quicksilver Moon.
Howsen expects both versions to be available on recordings to coincide with Rieu's concerts in May.

Alan Jones...The Seekers...it is now becoming a reality...just 10 weeks to go for Sydney. What a wonderful tribute from Judith Durham. I feel like a 16 year old Beatles fan instead of a '!?!mature senior citizen!?!'. Can't wait to embarrass my son who is taking me to the concert!!!

Thanks to all concerned for providing the Alan Jones interview with Andre. And thank goodness for my trusty laptop where I can log on to the wonderful Harmony Parlor and read all things Andre while holidaying on the NSW South Coast!
All I can say, is bring on Andre in May !!

cheeRIEU, Val :)

Oh yes !! The Seekers in the swinging sixties, what a magical era to look back on and now because of Andre we get to see them again . . Judith's voice sounds just as wonderful.
Thanks heaps Andre and we're so looking forward to seeing you all again in May - we've missed you !!

Loved the interview and can’t wait to hear the full Judith Durham version of “André”, from what I’ve heard in the interview the words tell exactly how we feel about André; I am in countdown mode for May 11. I hope André makes a DVD of the May 11 concert.
And Lana, I too feel like a 16 year old Beatles fan, my 23 year old son and his girlfriend are coming with me, his second time and her first time.
