Waltz towards 2018 in a swirl of Strauss with Barry Wordsworth and the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra. Blending some of the best-loved dance music ever written with a selection of favourite arias and songs and some less-familiar pieces, the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra is joined by the hugely popular soprano Rebecca Bottone for an afternoon of Viennese glamour.

The Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra is most grateful to the John Carewe Brighton Orchestra Trust for its continued support of the Orchestra and of its annual New Year’s Eve Viennese Gala.
