On My Bucket List: Vienna New Year’s Concert

I’ve never really kept an official “bucket list”. For much of my youth I really just stayed hopeful that when I became an adult I’d have enough money to do things like travel the world and eat all the food found in those locales. With Aiden I make seasonal bucket lists of activities and it’s got me thinking about things I’d like to do one day with a little planning.

One item on that list is to attend the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra‘s New Year’s concert. What makes this concert special other than it being a great way to ring in the new year is that they play the Radetsky March with the audience participation. We did this at a recent concert here and it was so fun that I’d do it again if I had the chance.

Thanks to the beauty of the internet, I found the full 2015 concert on YouTube, below.

The whole program is over 2 hours, so if you’d like to hear the Radetsky March fast forward to hour 2 and 16 minutes, or click here to start at that mark.
