André Rieu ZDF Special "I Am Home For Christmas"

André Rieu "I Am Home For Christmas"
For this year's Christmas party Andre Rieu invites the ZDF viewers to a festive Christmas concert at his house, or rather to his snowy winter like garden on December 24 from 8.15 - 10.15PM. Together with his Johann Strauss Orchestra, he will play the most beautiful German and internationally famous Christmas carols.
Contributors are the Platinum Tenors, the sopranos Carla Maffioletti, Mirusia Louwerse and Kimmy Skota, the children's choir "Sjamaas" and the sweet 10-year-old ballerina Rosa. Andre Rieu, with his usual charm, tells how he celebrates Christmas with his family, which customs are celebrated in his house and which beautiful traditions he has maintained from his childhood. And he shows us how he himself decorates the house with great joy.
One of the highlights is undoubtedly the song "Decemberlights", which Andre Rieu composed for his wife, Marjorie, which he will play for you for the first time during this concert . Of course André will be reading a surprising Christmas story of his life under the Christmas tree, which for him has been of great importance for his career as a musician.

The special concludes with a concert in the St. Peter's Church next to his house, by the above mentioned soloists, as well as a performance by the world renowned men's choir "the Mestreechter Staar".

During this evening André Rieu will be playing amongst others the wonderful and famous songs, "Silent Night," "Oh Holy Night," "Every year again," "Oh Christmas Tree," "Adeste Fideles," "Ave Maria," "Hallelujah," but also happy songs like "In the Christmas bakery "(of course in his kitchen!)," Jingle Bells ", "Walking through the winter wonderland "and many others. 
André's house and romantic garden were for this wonderful ZDF concert beautifully decorated in a Christmas like atmosphere, whereby it looks like a fairytale castle. Truly a very special Christmas concert which should not be missed!
Thanks to Hexlein and Kathy from the German Fansite for this article and to Ineke and John for translating it for us.

Looks like it will be another great Christmas program - looking forward to when it comes out on DVD. Sounds like that will be next year though? Happy Holidays to all!

It sounds like a wonderful concert!\I wonder if there will be a DVD on this special event so that we here in SA will also be able to share in this special occasion?
I hope Andre will have a wonderful Christmas time with Marjorie and his family.

It Must have been a very special concert and those who were able to attend are very priviledged! I wonder if there will be a DVD on that one and also the concert in Faifax VA? Anyone perhaps know?
I'm sure it was a very special Christmas for the whole Rieu family to be together. Wishing them all a very prosperous 2012 full of music and exhibitions for Marc.
