Who are the Gracenotes??
Five sparkling musical personalities, one desire:
Sharing the joy and pleasure of making music together.
Nadejda Diakoff viola, Karin Hinze cello, Anna Reker-Glaser vocalist,
Laurianne Thysebaert violin and Stéphanie Detry, piano.
Since January 1st 2017 these five musicians, all members of André Rieu’s Johann Strauss Orchestra,
have compiled a joyous and eclectic repertoire, ranging from music of the 18th century to romantic
melodies, operetta, musical comedy and a touch of jazz.
The unusual compositions of this ensemble (piano quartet with vocalist) requires the five members to make
new musical arrangements, giving the group a style which is both playful and unique.
On Pentecost Monday, May 21st 2018, between 11 AM and 6 PM,
The Gracenotes will perform
during a country fair at the 16th century castle d’Aspremont-Lynden in the beautiful Belgian village of Oud
Rekem (Lanaken), close to the Dutch border.
Art exhibitions, fashion shows (among them head fascinators and hair ornaments by AgAtelier (Agnes
Fizzano) and Atelier Pauline (hats). Regional products, crafts market, music, art and live demonstrations.

We fear that we have to shorten our traditional fan picnic gathering (from 12 -2PM) in the City Park.
So be sure that you are in time for the picnic at 12 PM, because we’ll run away to the theater at 1.45 PM.
There is a meet and greet after the concert.

We enjoyed the performance and the Meet and Greet afterwards very much.
