Orchestra Hall at the Chicago Symphony Center has a delightful way to continue celebrating the New Year, Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014.
Instead of traveling to Vienna for its annual New Year’s concert, merely go downtown Chicago for “Salute to Vienna,” an Austrian musical tribute of Viennese waltzes and dances.
The Strauss Symphony of America along with the Chicago Philharmonic, led by Viennese conductor Christian Schultz, will have audiences swaying to traditional waltzes.
The International Champion Ballroom Dancers and Europaballett-St. Pölten ballet dancers add their graceful interpretations. In addition, the concert features tenor Brian Cheney and soprano Monika Rebholz.
Salute to Vienna is 2:30 p.m., Jan. 5, 2014 at Orchestra Hall, 220 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60604. Tickets are $39-$105 but there is a 15 % discount for tickets bought before Sunday. Click here or call 312-294-3000. Use the promo code WALTZ for the tickets.
