Enjoy the sounds of a master with Andre Rieu's 'And The Waltz Goes On' tour
Master violinist Andre Rieu is back in Australia next month with the Johann Strauss Orchestra, giving fans a taste of classical music at its best with his And The Waltz Goes On tour.
Rieu will be playing his way through much of Australia as the tour gets into full swing, but you can catch him at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on October 12, just a short drive away from Mantra on Queen.
This newly refurbished 30-storey building is ideal for those looking for centrally-located holiday accommodation in Queensland's bustling capital.
And The Waltz Goes On
As one of the best-selling live acts in the world, you can expect a totally new experience when you see Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra live.
"With soloists, violins, cellos, oboes, flutes, violas, trumpets, tubas and more taking the stage with Rieu, you're sure to be swept away by the sounds at his upcoming Brisbane show."
With a passion for making classical music accessible to everyone, Rieu does away with the traditionally solemn atmosphere of concert halls and does his best to get everyone involved and engaged with the music.
The Johann Strauss Orchestra carries on this aim with enthusiastic musicians having fun with the classical pieces. The orchestra began with only 12 members in 1987, but that figure has grown to between 50 and 60 today, and they are an integral part of the Andre Rieu experience.

Born in the Netherlands in 1949, Rieu grew up immersed in classical music from a very early age. His father was a professional conductor and Rieu's first lessons in the violin began at the tender age of five.
He continued to develop his skills throughout the years, eventually founding his very first orchestra in 1978 called the Maastricht Salon Orchestra.
From the 1980s onwards, with the Johann Strauss Orchestra, Rieu released several albums of his favourite classical pieces that enjoyed significant chart success and catapulted him to even greater fame.
Today, the 'Modern King of Waltz' continues to delight and amaze audiences all around the world.
