Recommended: Salute to Vienna New Year's Concert on Dec 30 at Strathmore

On Saturday, December 30, 2017, celebrate the arrival of 2018 in style with Salute to Vienna New Year's Concert at the Music Center at Strathmore, MD. The spirited romance of operetta, the glamour of ballroom dance, and the delicate beauty of ballet will waltz you into the arrival of 2018. Inspired by Vienna’s beloved New Year’s Concert, this charming celebration blends acclaimed European singers and dancers with a full symphony orchestra for a rich cultural experience that will leave your toes tapping. A Washington tradition for 17 years! 

"I am delighted to see that Salute to Vienna is received so warmly every year, and that it has become a favorite holiday musical tradition. It is said that music is one of the quickest and easiest ways to build bridges between nations and cultures. I am proud to say that the Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert has played a major role in contributing to that idea. This year, the world-famous Blue Danube Waltz celebrates its 150th anniversary. It has become the unofficial national anthem of Austria, and Vienna’s international signature tune – a musical message that is understood throughout the world. I wish everyone an unforgettable afternoon!" Ambassador Wolfgang Waldner
