On July 26th, 2019, an article appeared in the magazine for opera lovers: Place de l’Opera:Donij van Doorn clicks with André Rieu.Go to the Harmony Parlor website to read this very nice interview, click HERE.
This is what André Rieu wrote on his website, to introduce Donij.Donij van DoornDuring our DVD recordings in the Efteling fairy tale and amusement park (2006), one of my choir sopranos suddenly became ill. Fortunately, Donij (who at the time was studying at the Maastricht Academy of Music) was able to fill in at the last moment. This beauty from Twente (arear in the province of Overijssel) immediately enchanted me, with her crystal clear voice. For Donij, it was a fairy tale that came true. She told me later that as a girl, she wanted most of all to become a princess!Donij loves opera; she now has numerous roles on her name as an opera singer. She even got to know her boyfriend during an opera production. I am very glad that Donij travels around the world with us. When she sings her arias, it simply makes me cry, it is so beautiful.
