Song for Stéphanie

Lucky Hereditary Grand Duchess, not only did she have a love song written specifically for her and her husband, now she also has a march dedicated to her: The Marche Princesse Stéphanie premiered last night during the Fir ons Heemecht gala concert of the Harmonie Municipale Esch-sur-Alzette attended by the lady of honour, Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie, and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume. Composed by the orchestra's director Jean Thill, the Hereditary Grand Duchess was presented with a musical score of the song dedicated to her.

While the first part of last night's concert at the Théâtre municipal d’Esch was dedicated to the 175th anniversary of Luxembourg's independence and the 150th birthday of the country's national anthem, Ons Heemecht, the second part celebrated the 70th anniversary of Luxembourg's liberation towards the end of World War II and the return of Grand Duchess Charlotte. The concert was also attended by Lydia Mutsch, Minister of Health and Equal Opportunities.

 No pictures as of yet but there will be added if any become available. 
More photos can be found on the website of the cour.
