Vienna New Year Concert

Edited: January 1, 2019, 8:28 PM · Because of time constraints and a heavy workload, which carried over into New Year's Day 2019, I caught only a few snippets of this year's program. I'll catch more via replays on YouTube -- when I have time.

Meanwhile, check out this clip from the 2012 lineup that I came across a few years back -- a choreographed version of Johann Strauss Jr.'s "Freuet euch des Lebens" (Enjoy Life). The routine, which begins about 1 minute into the video, has some tastefully sensuous moves, still G-rated or, at most, mild PG. Run time: 8:35.

Two elements here, music and fitness, are very much part of my life -- I've long known that dancers work out a fair amount. These guys have to be strong to lift the ladies off the ground again and again. Hats off to the VPO players.
