Escape to Vienna’s Golden Age!

Waltz into the new year with Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert, now a North American Tradition! This dazzling performance evokes a golden age of Viennese music, brimming with energy, merriment, and romance, and is a glorious re-creation of the beloved Neujahrskonzert, the concert that has welcomed the New Year for more than 80 years in Vienna and all over the world.


Led by a witty and charming conductor who is an expert in Viennese music, Salute to Vienna features a European cast of singers, ballroom dancers, and ballet that brings to life the music of Johann Strauss. Backed by the Strauss Symphony, the performance is rich with selections from beloved operettas, elegant dances, lively overtures, and the beautiful Blue Danube Waltz. Celebrate the start of the New Year with Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert, now a 26 year tradition.

On behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito and I would like to welcome you to the 2020 Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert. Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert has united American and Canadian artists with the international community in a vibrant musical celebration of Viennese culture. In the beloved tradition of Vienna’s legendary “Neujahrskonzert,” Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert is a charming homage that showcases the timeless pleasure of Vienna’s most beautiful and festive music. Every holiday season you can expect famous operetta excerpts, the enthralling sound of a full orchestra, the glamour of ballroom dancing, and the delicate beauty of ballet ring in the New Year with a grand celebration thanks to this joyous event. This year will surely prove to be no different and we are truly honored to be able to host such a wonderful musical and cultural experience here in the Commonwealth. Please accept our congratulations to Attila Glatz Concert Productions on the eighth annual presentation of Salute to Vienna. We hope you enjoy the show – and the New Year!

Grand Rabbi Y.A. Korff, Consul of Austria for New England, Boston


We are delighted to see the beautiful and exhilarating tradition of Viennese music and celebration being brought to Boston. The sounds and the spirit of masters such as Strauss, Mozart and others filling the concert hall with melodies, waltzes, and operatic arias provide an uplifting experience unlike any other. May the music, song, and dance of Austrian heritage and culture continue to bring joy and gladness to the ears, the eyes, the heart, and the soul.
