Update by Mirusia, November 23rd 2015:Hi Everyone!Last week I was listening to the radio and I heard a Christmas song - the first one I have heard this year! And it made me realize that this year is already drawing to a close. It’s been a really incredible 2015 and I have enjoyed singing for many of you all over the world in Germany, Australia, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Belgium, France, Romania, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Denmark and Sweden.I am very much looking forward to Saturday when I will launch my ‘This Time Tomorrow’ Tour in Coffs Harbour, Australia. The 2016 tour, which takes me throughout Australia and The Netherlands, is my dedication to my fans and friends and to wish them a brighter tomorrow. I have been busy writing the theme song for this tour and would already like to give you a preview of some of the lyrics, which in these times of worry, really mean a lot to me: “We’ll face tomorrow, hand in hand, together, makes us strong.” I will be giving the debut performance of this song next Saturday the 28th of November, and I really cannot wait. Joining me on tour through Australia is Graeme Press, my Musical Director, who many of you already know, and well known Australian guitarist Anthony Garcia, who will be playing some special songs with me which we have selected especially for you all.Something else I am looking forward to is being able to spend some time with my parents over the Christmas period. Can you believe the last time I saw them in person was at Youri and my wedding in July? I am certainly looking forward to a Summery Christmas back home and singing at the outdoor carols events held annually. I am sure you all have exciting plans too - anything you would like to share?So for now, I leave you with a Christmas song (Video below) - perhaps it will be the first one you hear this year? It really is the most wonderful time of the year!Love from,Mirusiawww.mirusia.netOur mailing address is: MIRUSIA: firstname.lastname@example.org

DVD “Roman Holiday”.Mirusia on Facebook: André Rieu and Frank Steijns wrote a beautiful song, with the lyrics by Marjorie Rieu, called Mio Angelo. They presented this song to me to celebrate that Youri and I were getting married. And I sing it on André's latest album Roman Holiday which will be released on Nov. 13, 2015. We filmed an accompanying video clip in June, which was a great "dress rehearsal" for Youri and myself as we got married a month later! Click picture to hear the song.

Via Facebook Mirusia shared her family history with us, while performing with André in Poland. She wrote: “Today (May 28, 2015) is a very special day for me. I will be visiting Poland, and singing there, for the first time with André Rieu. Poland has always been a very special country for me as I have Polish heritage. My late Grandfather Johannes came from Poland. In World War II he helped free Breda, a city in The Netherlands, from the Nazi occupation. It was in Breda that he met my Dutch Grandmother Maria. When I was born my parents gave me a Polish name: Mirusia. And my middle name Joanna is in memory of my Grandfather. I have always been proud of my Polish heritage and I just cannot wait to sing for you all in Poland!”
