WASO celebrates Vienna at its glittering, exuberant best in a concert of luxurious, charming music from the olde worlde capital of classical music. Be swept away by the lilting waltzes of Johann Strauss Jr. including On the Beautiful Blue Danube, seduced by the charming violin music of Fritz Kreisler and dazzled by the sophisticated elegance of Richard Strauss’ waltz-filled Suite from Der Rosenkavalier.

Composer, conductor, educator - Leonard Bernstein was quite simply one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth-century. Extravagantly talented and boundlessly creative, he fused genres and styles to create quintessentially American music. To mark the 100th anniversary of Bernstein's birth, Benjamin Northey conducts a spectacular program showcasing 'Lenny’s' work for Broadway, film screen and concert stage, from the streetwise West Side Story to the hopeful and uplifting Chichester Psalms.
