Huge Trees Force Rieu To Creativity

Preparations For The Mini Concert

Huge trees force Rieu to creativity by L1 news - A mini concert by Andre Rieu will be aired live from the OLV (Our Dear Lady’s) square on Friday by broadcast station MAX. Two huge trees at the OLV square are creating a few headaches. Right in the center where the stage needs to be are namely two huge trees.

Cut Them Down

A problem for which Rieu already had a solution. "I told the city to cut them down and make violins out of the wood; they turned white. Of course it was a joke. I am a lover of trees. They will be receiving a place of honor on the stage. The orchestra members will be placed nicely around them.

Procession

And so, nothing more stands in the way of the mini concert – the violin virtuoso will probably perform for a half hour. Rieu might be performing a surprising repertoire. "As a youngster I often walked in a procession. The song that was often sung was "Sterre ter Zee" (Star of the Sea). Wouldn’t that fit just right on this square? The older Maastricht residents know the text by heart, just like I, so who knows whether or not I might play that."

Free

The concert on the square is part of the TV series "Time for MAX" which airs daily from 17:00 – 18:00. On Friday a large part of the program will consists of Rieu’s concert. Admittance to the square for the concert is free. There are a few restrictions: people are not allowed to bring chairs and umbrellas are also not permitted.
