In 1980, The Vienna Hofburg Orchestra performed their first New Year’s Concert in Vienna in the Festsaal of the Vienna Hofburg. It quickly became a yearly highlight for lovers of classical music.
The program traditionally represents popular works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the Strauss family, Franz Lehar and Emmerich Kalman.
The orchestra consists of up to 50 musicians led by an international conductor and accompanied by four excellent opera singers.
Since 2018 the Vienna Hofburg Orchestra performs its New Year’s Concert in the Garden Palace Liechtenstein, one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Vienna.
