Special guests were two gentlemen named Rafael Ruiz and Antonio Romero Monge (Los del Rio), who had a hit in 1996: the Macarena. Another surprise this year was that André’s younger brother Robert played the cello in the orchestra.

August 2, 2018: Frank Steijns shared our video clip of Sister Leona on his Facebook timeline.This is the comment he wrote: “The visit of the oldest fan (Sister Leona): this was my absolute highlight of the Vrijthof concerts 2018!André and I visit Sister Leona on each birthday. My father used to play the organ in their chapel for decades and my sister (not Sister) worked there, so I know each Sister of the nunnery 'Onder de Bogen' already for decades. Very, very, emotional to see brave, little, strong, enthusiastic 104-year old Sister Leona come to the concert and dance with André”.
It was a surprise for us to see Sister Leona again.And we felt honored that Frank shared our video.Below a photo impression of the concert and the Harmony Parlor fan-friends.
