The New Year Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic takes place each year in the morning of January 1 in Vienna, Austria. As far as I can think back - each New Year's Day I've listen to this concert which gives me such a wonderful start, "waltzing" into the new year!

The New Year's Concert - It has long been a Philharmonic tradition at the New Year to present a program consisting of the lively and at the same time nostalgic music from the vast repertoire of the family of Johann Strauss and its contemporaries. These concerts not only delight the audiences in the Musikverein in Vienna, but also enjoy great international popularity through the worldwide television broadcast, which now reaches over 90 countries.
