Sam's Special Experience With André

Sam's Special Experience With André Rieu

Written by Sam's Grandmother Sally: "I felt I had to tell everyone what happened to Sam, my autistic grandson, at André's Nottingham concert on the 15th of December". 

Samuel loves André and also Tanya. His teacher Wendy at his special school arranged for him to travel to the Nottingham venue on the afternoon of the concert.


André came down from the stage, in the middle of the sound check, and spent some time talking to him, then Tanya also came to talk to him. And when some of the orchestra went off for their meal, Samuel was invited to go up onto the stage, where he played his violin and jumped around with delight, whereupon those remaining orchestra members joined in and played for him.You cannot imagine the pleasure Samuel got from this.


Finally André returned to the stage to say goodbye to him, gave him a hug, and signed his violin for him. What a very kind and thoughtful man he is, to do all that for a disabled boy. Of course, his grandmother (me!) who introduced Samuel to Andre's music, was green with envy, but so thrilled for Sam.
