On the occasion of our 10th anniversary we renewed our fan website with a fresh new look on January 1st 2017. We hope to continue following André Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra for many more years to come and bring pleasure to the fans with our updates and translations. Since we live in the Netherlands, we are very proud to be long term fans (over 25 years) of a Dutch world star and his multi-talented orchestra.
