André Rieu – The Family Man
To André Rieu, his family is the most important factor in his success. He’s been married for 40 years to Marjorie, a former teacher for German and Italian. The couple has two sons, Marc (who is a painter) and Pierre (who is Vice President of André Rieu Productions). André and Marjorie have four little grandchildren, of which three have already started playing the violin.
