A jubilee of 15 years in a row performances on the Vrijthof Square,Twelve concerts in total, divided into a series of 3 blocks of 4 concerts during three weekends in July.The last concert (July 21st) was the 100th concert on the Vrijthof Square. André was honored by the Mayor of Maastricht, who gave him an everlasting bronze plaquette in the Vrijthof pavement on the spot of his stage. A brand new stage, two carillons, new gowns, 300 waltzing couples, amazing arias, wonderful pieces of music, an extraordinary panflute solo by Teun, dancing with 105 year old Sister Leona.
