Viennese New Year’s Favorites

Viennese New Year

Happy 2021! For many decades music lovers have enjoyed the New Year’s concerts from Vienna with the Vienna Philharmonic. In this show we have our own Viennese New Year’s extravaganza with sparkling music by the Strauss family Johann (Sr. and II), Eduard, and Josef, and some of the best conductors of this music – Clemens Krauss, Carlos Kleiber, Herbert von Karajan and Willi Boskovsky. It’s a fabulous and fun hour of music.
