By way of a pre-Christmas winter warmer, we visit the most musical of all cities, Vienna. Beyond the traditional waltzes and polkas most often associated with Vienna, we hear music by composers from Mozart to Richard Strauss, via the ever-popular operettas of Johann Strauss II and Franz Lehár. We are extremely excited to be joined for this concert by the brilliantly versatile soprano Rebecca Bottone, who will share with us her affinity with the music of Vienna.
