CHICAGO: Usher in the New Year with the dazzling spectacle of Salute to Vienna
New Year’s Concert at Orchestra Hall, Symphony Center. This concert, celebrating 24 years in North America, is a crystalline moment of timeless beauty. Inspired by the annual Viennese “Neujahrskonzert”, this frothy celebration blends acclaimed European singers and dancers with a full orchestra in a fresh new programme each year. Step into Vienna’s golden age and spend the evening caught up in the joy, grandeur, and music of a time past but not forgotten.
On December 30, join Viennese conductor Oliver Ostermann and The Strauss Symphony of America featuring the Chicago Philharmonic, who will perform with Viennese soprano Beate Ritter, tenor Brian Cheney, members of the Kiev-Aniko Ballet of Ukraine, and International Champion Ballroom Dancers. Audiences young and old will be carried away by the first notes of the eternal Blue Danube Waltz.
