Wow, my heart beat fast -- in three-quarter time, of course -- when I learned I would have a chance to become the Official Photographer for Andre Rieu when he comes to HSBC Arena this fall.
Everyone has a chance! So blared a bulletin from Rieu-land.
The perks are many:
"The winner for the show at HSBC Arena will receive a pair of tickets for great seats to the show on November 21, a Nikon CoolPix digital camera, an autographed tour program, and a chance to win a specially designed canvas that utilizes their photo. The winner will document his/her experience at the concert, with photos taken before and during the performance, and then send their favourite shots to the Web site after the concert. The best photos from each concert will be featured on Andre’s site, offering fans not at those shows a glimpse of what they’re missing."
So... how does one throw one's cap into the Waltz King ring?
This is kind of a disappointment but you do not have to swim the blue Danube, or demonstrate your skills at the waltz or the polka. You do not have to write in 50 words what Johann Strauss Jr. waltz is your favorite and why.
You do not even have to take any pictures and send them in, demonstrating your skills as a paparazzo.
It appears that you just get on Andre Rieu's Web site and register for a drawing.
Pick me, Andre, pick me!
