ENCORES INCLUDED: Strauss and Company, Amazing Grace, Libiamo, Adieu, Oh Canada, Marina
ABSENT WERE: Frank Steijns, Nicolle Steins, Ruud Merx, Jet, Diana Morsinkhof, Pierre Colen, Linda Custers, and of course Nadejda Diakoff and Nathalie Bolle who are on maternity leave. Also, there was no harp. Mireille Brepols was on Tympani .......... Al Girard

Wow, what a quick turnover. Great pictures, Al. Looks like a fun concert as always.

Wow, Al...that was real super quick! And very nice too....However, judging from your photos, Jet Gelens was also missing and did Andre have a temporary replacement for Nathalie?
The Rieu website has been so quiet this past week that I was wondering whether they had actually left for Canada - we did not get Andre's usual tweet about leaving/arriving or starting the first concert either....and the news section hasn't been updated during the last few days.

Regards to all from ENTIA on a lazy spring Sunday afternoon in sunny South Africa.

Yes, VERY fast, Al, and to imagine Sue was waiting at her end and worked on them before we woke up...the efficiency was kind of scary! And we knew Al would have great pics but taking attendance record too??? Impressive!

Thanks Al, Kay & Jennifer and John & Bobbie for the pictures and comments. Look forward to your pictures Bobbie & John and hope you include a report.
We missed Maastricht this summer and wish we had been there to see you all.
Will be in Detroit next Monday with MI family and friends from Ohio and Nevada.
Re the missing long-time members. I have been to concerts where some joined later in the tour or left early. They have worked so hard on the new CD and Christmas DVD and most have families, so it's not strange to have a smaller orchestra.
