The ISO's ever-popular Viennese concerts are truly a New Year's festival, brightening the dark winter days with zesty and vibrant music and setting an upbeat tone for the year to come. Canadian conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson takes the podium as the Orchestra performs waltzes and polkas by Johann Strauss the Younger, including the Emperor Waltz and the Blue Danube, as well as the overture to Die Fledermaus.

Two of Iceland's leading young singers take the stage, joined by dancers. Jóhann Kristinsson has earned an excellent reputation as a lyric and opera singer, winning first prize in the international Stella Maris Vocal Competition in 2019 and the Jury Award from the Wiener Musikverein, where he competed on behalf of the Hamburg State Opera. Álfheiður Erla Guðmundsdóttir was selected Singer of the Year at the 2021 Icelandic Music Awards. She has appeared in opera houses throughout Europe, including the Berlin State Opera. She is currently a member of the soloist ensemble at Theater Basel in Switzerland.

The vibrancy of Viennese music is the perfect way to ring in the new year.
