BLAOSMEZIEK ”Music All Inclusive”

We Ed Martin and I are fans of Suzan Erens. We agree to meet each other in front of the Theater in Sittard. At 8:30 PM we entered the theater to find our tickets.

The orchestra was a big brass band “Harmonie St. Joseph from Sittard, director Björn Bus.

We thought this is not an orchestra that suites Suzan Erens. But we were wrong, it was fantastic. Also the voice of Marc Clear who sang together with Suzan was beautiful.

 In the Lobby with Suzan - Some personal information about Suzan!

After the concert we met Suzan in the lobby.

We, Ed Martin and me, could talk for a long time with Suzan.

I ask her about “Where in Norway she will live?”

She explained to me, near the Pole Circle (Mosjoen) in the Municipality of Vefsn

320 Km north of Trondheim.

From their house they have a beautiful view. And she can ski nearly the whole year through.

Her boyfriend Mitch is from Sittard and is a Dutchman. They went there a few months ago and they liked it a lot.

Now they want to emigrate to that place. Mitch is a young man and bold.

He was very busy at that moment and walking back and forth.

Suzan said to me: “That’s Mitch. I saw him, but I was not presented to him.

My impression is he is a nice guy.

I ask her about the CD. She thinks the CD will be finished after a while, but yes will be released.

I ask her about her singing in Norway. She answered me, that’s not yet determined.


But concerning André specials, “If Andre invites me, I am available.”

So let’s start asking André to invite Suzan.


    Special thanks to Arie Bussmaker for this article and to Nan Cole for sending it to us.

    I think EVERYONE wants to hear of ANYTHING Suzan related.

    Hopefully, Andre will invite Suzan to participate in upcoming SPECIALS, he's planning.

    I believe that Suzan will always hold a special place in our hearts. I would love to see Suzan sing again with André and JSO. She sang one of the best renditions of "Don't Cry For Me Argentina".
    Thank you Arie for this nice report of Suzan and the concert.

      I live in an over 50's resort on the Gold Coast in Australia and we have a large hall with a giant screen and surround sound. Last night we had the pleasure of watching Andre's concert "Live in Maastricht 2" It was just like one was there and felt like getting up to dance. Everyone was applauding along with the crowd at the actual venue. I agree that Susan Erens will always hold a place in all our hearts. It was dissapointing that she (or Carmen) did not sing a solo.
      We have shown most of Andre's concerts in the hall and everyone is waiting until a new one comes out. Hopefully not too long.

        Marie, that must be great to watch Andre on that big screen! I always love the Maastricht concerts too, but I have to tell you, it would be hard to beat his Live In Australia.

          Yes Shirley, I have to agree that "Live in Australia" would be hard to beat. We were lucky enough to have front row seats for his concert in Brisbane. I was surprised that we were allowed to take cameras to his concerts, Harry made a fantastic video of this concert and of course we also have the commercial one.

    Arie Bussmaker,

    Andre Rieu choose an excellent singer. Suzan Erens is a beautiful woman. She has a musical ear and her voice is clear like a crystal, it is easy to understand all the words that she pronouces. I hope to see all of you in Rio de Janeiro next year, during show of Andre.
