In 1987, Attila Glatz Productions came to North America with the mission to add breadth and variety to musical events from Canada to the United States, and beyond. Salute to Vienna, always presented around New Year’s Day, is the company’s signature presentation, modeled after “Neujahrskonzert,” performed in concert halls from the Lincoln Center in New York City to the Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A.
For over 17 years, Salute to Vienna has been commemorating the music of Johann Strauss Jr. and his contemporaries for audiences across North America. Every year debuts new programs featuring a full orchestra under the baton of a renowned European conductor, expert European singers, and Viennese dancers. Co-founders Marion and Attila Glatz were awarded the Austrian Government’s Decoration of Merit in Gold for the dedication and passion put into the Viennese tradition.
In addition to Salute to Vienna, the company also produces and manages tours for classical, jazz, folk, and country artists across the globe. They produce over 50 performances per year; including an exclusive Toronto engagement of world-famous tenor, Plácido Domingo, a Strauss/Gershwin Gala in Vienna featuring the late Gregory Peck as narrator, Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY, and The Lord of the Rings Symphony in cooperation with Columbia Artist Management.
Stay in New Brunswick on New Year’s Eve and see the fireworks display at midnight off the roof of The Heldrich hotel right across the street from the State Theatre in Monument Square.
