Happy Birthday, Vanessa-Mae!

Today is Vanessa-Mae’s birthday! Where ever she is, we hope she is having fun among family and friends. Leave a message if you like. She may even read it!

Besides wishing her Happy Birthday, talk about what her music has meant to you. For this writer, it is the sole reason why he began playing the violin. He still does to this day…

Vanessa-Mae is currently performing a handful of concerts. You can check them out here:


There is also an interview she did as she prepares for her 10th concert at the Crocus City Hall. You can view the interview here:


Happy Birthday Vanessa-Mae

It is exciting to see Vanessa-Mae be among them.

However, this concert is shorter in length somewhat. It is available on Youtube. Please give a LIKE to the author!

I’m also happy to report that she has answered the questions we’ve submitted last year.  She has changed managers, which is the reason for the delay.  Check out her answers here.  I found her answers fascinating!

She has now focused on her new album, which is a nice confirmation we’ve waited years to hear.  I’m also planning to open a new thread topic where we can ask her additional questions.

Stay tuned …

Vanessa-Mae visits Tashkent! (updated 9/22/18)

Vanessa-Mae performs in Tashkent for the first time …

Good evening Vanessa-Mae fans!  Vanessa-Mae just performed this past Wednesday in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.   She performed with a youth orchestra specifically chosen for this concert.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to locate any footage of the concert.  However, she did a short interview after the concert where she recounts her visit.  She also talked extensively about being “experimental” with music, and be willing to take chances.  You can check it out below.

If anyone does find any footage of the concert, please let me know immediately.  I will give you credit for the find and post it here on the main site.  Thank you!  Don’t forget to visit our forum and say hi!

[update – 9/22/18] Here’s a clip uploaded to Youtube that contains the first couple of songs Vanessa-Mae performed.  Please let me know if anyone finds anymore!  Thanks!!

In preparation for Vanessa-Mae’s birthday …

Vanessa-Mae’s birthday is a little over two months from now.  She was born on October 27, 1978.  Here’s a little fun fact, did you know Niccolo Paganini was also born on that same day?  Vanessa has often stated Paganini is her favorite composer.

As a tradition, we send Vanessa questions asked by fans on the VMnet forum .  We have done this for the past 14 years, and she’s answered every single one!  Now I’m giving you the chance to ask your own question.  Remember though, I cannot guarantee that your question will be chosen.  We only send about six or seven questions total.

How?  You must first register on the forum and then head over to the Vanessa’s birthday thread for details.

We also send presents and this year’s will be very special.  The present itself is worth thousands of dollars and will be very unique.  I can’t wait to tell you more about it!


Update – 11/16/17

Here’s the message I sent to Vanessa-Mae on her birthday card:

Dearest Vanessa-Mae,

Happy 39th Birthday! We here at the VMnet forum wish that you had a very memorable birthday, spending time with loved ones and having lots of fun! All of us wish to thank you for the wonderful memories that you have given throughout your extraordinary career.

We have a very special birthday present for you, but it’s not ready yet. Please
stay tuned! 🙂

Of course we do have a few questions that we hope you’d be willing to answer:

1) What keeps you busy nowadays musically (in between concerts)?

2) Any news on a new album? If not, could you tell us what style(s) of music that it would encompass?

3) Your fans in the U.S. miss you! Do you plan on performing in the U.S. in the not-too-distant future?

4) During your concerts recently, We notice you’ve played some music we haven’t heard you play in quite some time.  For example, “Picante” and “I will always love you”. Do you plan to keep going back and performing pieces from your earlier work that you haven’t perform in quite a while? If so, we love the idea! Paganini’s “24th Caprice” and “Classical Gas” come to mind … 🙂

5) Do you have a strict practice regiment you follow? When you practice, are there certain pieces that you like to play to keep yourself in shape?

… and that’s it! Once again, thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you!

Lastly, her birthday present is still not ready yet.  I recommend you visit the forum’s birthday thread to stay informed.

Bratislava welcomes Vanessa-Mae on May 11, 2017! [updated 5/25/17]

Next stop: Bratislava

Vanessa-Mae is continuing her tour she started back in February.  This time, she plays two concerts in Bratislava just a few days ago.  Right now, there has not been much footage uploaded of the concert.  However, I included what I did find below.  I will continue to update this page as more videos become available.

She looks great as always, and once again wears a beautiful pink dress.  It seems like the same one she wore at her Valentine’s Day concert.  She did wear another dress, but the footage is quite grainy.  Unfortunately, I am not able to tell much as the fan who recorded it was quite far from the stage.

May will be a busy month for Vanessa-Mae!  She has concerts planned in Macedonia, Israel and Poland all before month’s end.  As a result, you can expect to be seeing more footage from these appearances.
