Phoenix, Arizona – André Léon Marie Nicolas Rieu (born 1 October 1949) is a Dutch violinist, conductor, and composer best known for creating the waltz-playing Johann Strauss Orchestra. Andre Rieu and his orchestra of 100+ musicians in period costumes gave a picture-perfect performance at the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix with a guest appearance by Paul Anka (because Paul’s wife is a huge fan of Andre) singing “My Way – which he wrote for Frank Sinatra. It was nice to among the minority in the room not receiving social security – for a change!
