A Salute to Vienna New Year's Concert has dazzled audiences of all ages in concert halls across the United States and Canada annually for twenty five years. The music of Johann Strauss and his contemporaries is brought to life in a spectacle of joy with a live symphony orchestra, European singers, ballroom dancers, and ballet. From the eternal notes of the beautiful Blue Danube Waltz, to overtures and arias from beloved operettas, the concert features a fresh musical programme and a new cast each year. Dedicated to preserving a musical heritage, Salute to Vienna celebrates a gilded age of Viennese music. The tour starts on first weekend in December until the first weekend in January.
