Vienna & Barenboim New Year's, Live @10AM

Start 2014 with the Vienna Philharmonic's annual New Year's Day concert, broadcast live from Vienna at 10AM. This year, the orchestra has invited Daniel Barenboim, the Israeli conductor and pianist, to lead their festival of waltzes, polkas, and other Viennese delights. At noon, stay tuned for the Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre performing Robert Lindsey-Nassif's marvelous new children's opera Frankenboy (the story of Melvin Frankenstein and his first day at Transylvania Middle School), and then at 2PM, join us to hear the Boston Baroque and Martin Pearlman in a New Year's Day Bach concert.
