Years ago, on a late Sunday afternoon in winter, bored and wanting to watch something on television, I flipped through the TV channels. Nothing captured my attention. Before turning the TV off, I went to the PBS channel. There was André Rieu in concert. I had never heard of him, but I was immediately drawn to his music and his beautiful orchestra. I’ve always found the violin and the flute to be very soothing.
I happily listened to his concert while I sifted through paperwork and did my filing. My Italian mother always played classical music and various Operas at home, so listening to this music was also nostalgic. If you watch a bit of the concert, you’ll see that his concerts are always sold out.
Years have gone by, and when I feel a little low and need my spirits lifted, I go to YouTube to find one of his concerts. Last year, I FINALLY decided to put “seeing his concert LIVE” on my Bucket List. I found out he has started coming to America. However, I want to see him in Europe. Vienna would be my first choice.
Thanks to YouTube for sharing videos of André Rieu’s concert. As winter approaches, and Sunday’s will seem dreary, his beautifully dressed orchestra playing music that I have not listened to for a while will lift my spirits!
