Start your New Year off right, with a breathtaking concert from the Vienna Philharmonic on ValleyPBS!
Stage and screen legend Julie Andrews returns for the fourth time to host Great Performances - From Vienna: The New Year's Celebration 2013. The festive annual concert is the largest worldwide event
in classical music, reaching over a billion people annually through radio and television in 72 countries.
The Vienna Philharmonic's traditional New Year's program showcases Viennese musical culture at the highest level, and since the first television broadcast in 1959, has sent the world a New Year's greeting in
the spirit of hope, friendship and peace. The telecast has been a public television tradition on PBS since 1985.
Andrews is excited to host the event again. "I'm so delighted to return to Vienna at this magical time of year," she says. "This enchanting city never ceases to take my breath away with its fairytale beauty
and grace and history. The Strauss waltzes provide a most delectable soundtrack to the visual delights that surround me here."
