André Rieu At The Museum on The VrijthofActually, there is no better place, nor a better time to think of than now. In the museum on the Vrijthof, a mere twenty meters from the place where the stage will be during the annual Vrijthof concerts, a special exhibition about André Rieu under the title of: "Attention to Detail" will be shown.
By Jo Cortenraedt: Chapeau Magazine - It is the first time that a separate exhibition will be held for the phenomenon André Rieu. The exhibition, arranged in collaboration with the family Rieu, will be highlighting both musical and personal elements of André’s life and career. Articles having to do with his concerts are being exhibited. Visitors can now closely experience how, on the basis of this experience the "king of waltz" works to realize his musical dream.
During the exhibition, the visitor will get an idea of how far André Rieu’s love for detail goes. How does he work with his choice of music? What happens during rehearsals? Visitors can now see up close how the dresses are finished with jewelry. Personal documents from his life which have never been seen before and never before seen video footage will give visitors an intimate look at the world of André Rieu and his shows. The Vrijthof museum usually chooses a theme which fits within the general principle of "Made in Maastricht” and that can certainly be said about André Rieu.
He will be back on the Vrijthof the first two weeks of July with his entire orchestra, to deliver a special evening to a total of ten thousand people from all around the world.
The exhibition runs from June 21 to September 27
