According to youtube this young lady is Melissa Venema with Andre Rieu at Amsterdam Arena. I found the music to be very haunting and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

very good...strange every time I hear a trumpet the tv show "Highway to Heaven" comes to my mind. The theme was a very beautiful trumpet.

So beautiful. Thanks for posting this. Would you do me a favor Punkn?

Would you and your friends mind stopping by my blog and leaving some loving comments for my sister who is going through a hard time right now with her husband? She just feels so alone right now and I think it might help to get some outside support.

I'll have to watch when (if) I get to work on Monday - durn dial-up!

I've seen Andre on TV - the productions are always spectacular.

This is a performance from Andre Rieu's DVD "Maastricht II" and it is not from Amsterdam. Melissa did perform Il Silenzio in Amsterdam as well though. She was 13 years old when this concert was held, last July.

I was at the two concerts in Amsterdam and four in Maastricht. Simply amazing stuff.

Thank you Al Girard. I did a lot of looking to find information and one of the youtubes said the performance was in Amsterdam.

Lucky you to have seen her in person! I can only imagine.
