Fan dinner, Friday July 6th, 2018. 104 attendees, from 15 nationalities.
A memorable fan dinner!
Barbara Johnson, who visited Maastricht with her late husband many years in a row, was the first fan to
book our 2018 fan dinner in September 2017. She told us that she was so proud to bring three generations
of her family to Maastricht in July. Sadly she suddenly passed away in May 2018, but it was her wish that
the family would go. So six members of the Johnson family were our special guests at the fan dinner.
We are sure that Barbara and Howard joined us in spirit.
At the same time Kyle Craft celebrated his 25th birthday on July 6th 2018.
The Stiphout (shipping company) crew surprised him with a fireworks dessert!!
So sadness and joy came together.
That’s what life is!
To our surprise Laura Engel and Christina Petrou, sopranos, came to the fan dinner to meet the fans.
In between the André Rieu concerts, where they are members of the choir, they give three completely
different concerts under the name: “The Divas in concert”. We’ll dedicate a page on our website to these
