Good Morning Dearest Andre very cold at 2c and thick fog the birds squirrels an pheasants battle the weather I do all I can to provide extra food water an a warm water bath! They're such wonderous little balls of feathers surviving the cold the Blackbird flings leaves everywhere to get at the hidden grubs.'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas takes tea watching this beautiful scene listening to the magnificent music from your Dreaming Cd imagining future days of warmth as the sun rises bees buzz an flowers bloom, note after note creates such wonderous pictures, you're really magical Andre.Good Luck for your first Concert this year amid your beloved Dutch people, I think a brilliant trombonists spirit will hitch a ride to insure all goes well, safe travels. Lots of Love Lady Margaret.
Thoughts are with you all for your Amsterdam concert tonight. May you all have the strength to see it through and may it be successful.
Ich freue mich schon auf das Konzert in Neu-Ulm.
Es wird wieder ein herrliches Konzert . Bis Bald .
hello andre and jso. happy new year to you all. after the sad end to last year it is time to go again. i hope the tour goes well even though it is not going to be easy. but you yourself have told us music touches us and helps us through the most difficult times.hope that is true over the coming months.
Petit coucou à tous.
Je pense à vous tous très fort. Demain soir à Amsterdam, il vous faudra donner à votre public de la joie, et de la belle musique. Soirée difficile pour vous, il y aura dans vos coeurs beaucoup de tristesse.
Votre ami Ruud vous regarde il vous dit "continuez, avancez"
je vous souhaite plein de courage. Grosses Bises pour vous tous.
Dearest Andre - Happy New Year to all of you.
I will be thinking of you all tomorrow night in Amsterdam - Saturday 07 January - and hope you will all find the music in your hearts and the love from your adoring audience, will give you the start to this year you so deserve and make your blue eyes sparkle once again.
Will see you in Glasgow at the end of March and in Maastricht in July. Can't wait, and until then, as ever, do take very good care of yourself and your wonderful sparkling blue eyes.
With much, much love
Admiro muito seu trabalho e sua Orquestra.
Sonho em um dia poder ver uma apresentação de vocês...em pensar me emociono.
Estou nesse momento assistindo os vídeos no Youtube e impossível não chorar...é um conto de fadas...um sonho..
Me imagino em um belo vestido, dançando ao ouvir as sinfonias...
Infelizmente minhas condições financeiras não me permitem.
Tenho passaporte e visto mais não tenho dinheiro...vou fazer todo esforço possível para poder ir ao Chile em agosto.
Muito mais sucesso para o Senhor e Toda Orquestra.
Um forte abraço com carinho e afeto !!!
Caro Maestro domani ti aspetta un appuntamento importante e che ti toccherà il cuore tantissimo perchè per la prima volta suonerai senza un membro della tua orchestra e sapendo quanto sei sensibile sarà difficile per te.
Volevo chiederti quando verrai in Italia. Tu dici che vuoi portare gioia nel mondo con la tua musica ma da noi non vieni.
Ti prego non privarci della tua fantastica gioia e della tua musica.....in Italia ti amiamo veramente.
Happy New Year to you Andre and your family and orchestra.and our thoughts are with Rudds wife and family at this sad time .we will see you in Manchester in march our love to you all Geoff and Jean
Dear Andre as you prepare for your first concert tonight, I wish you the JSO and all the crew all the emotional courage and support you need . Do this for Ruud.
Hi dear Andre
How wonderful to see a lovely Media interview in your Studio this week as you were in rehearsal for tomorrow's Ziggo Dome NEW YEARS CONCERT. What a spectacular that will be Andre! As always, it moved me greatly seeing your lovely face and hearing you speak with such love in your voice, Andre, about how important your beloved Marjorie and your Sons and Grandchildren have been in your life. I never tire of hearing you speak of Marjorie’s dedication working a day job enabling you to stay home 'building' your life of music and creating your own Orchestra and how this allowed you so much time to 'bond' with your Sons, Andre, who I know absolutely adore you in return. Have a super special evening of enchantment in Amsterdam dear Andre. With love and respect always Viv xx
Good Morning Dearest Andre 2c windy an very cold the little Goldfinches get blown about but they love the sunflower hearts an the tiny Wren bobs under the plant foliage looking for bugs, he's so lovely. 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas is so lucky to have these wonders of nature visit her each day plus many more. I shed a silent but happy tear as I listen to the familiar an greatly loved pieces of music on your Moonlight Serenade Cd happy in the knowledge that no matter what life brings you're always there Andre with wonderful music that soothes, uplifts, comforts an always at its end brings warm happy smiles. Your brand of music is especially unique it's like being enfolded in warm loving arms that makes the world an ones life a better place. Lots of Love Lady Margaret.
Dear Andre the JSO and all in Maastricht

Dear Andre and Orchestra,
It has been such a sad Christmas and New Year following the loss of Ruud. He was so young to be taken from us and I know everyone will miss him. I had enjoyed his smile and humour for many years.

You are a great person in helping everyone to get through this sad time. I have always loved you folks for years and love you all. Please have everyone take care and travel safe. You bring joy and hope to all. Love to all family and wish you all the help God can bestow on you to help you through this sad time. Love to all. XXXXXXXXX
