Every New Years Eve, singletons face the same nightmare scenarioending the countdown with no one to kiss. Instead of drinking yourself to sleep this year, why not celebrate New Years Day the Austrian way? Inspired by Viennas classical New Years concert, Das Neujahrskonzert der Wiener Philharmoniker, the Orange County Performing Arts Center has graciously reproduced the spectacle for the past 16 yearsand its back with more schnitzelriffic action. The event features the Strauss Symphony of America, dancers from the Vienna City Ballet, polkas, waltzes and much, much more. Eine kleine nachtmusik, ja!
