The Kennedy Center Concert Hall burst at the seams Feb. 29, as music lovers delighted in a rare Washington appearance of the Vienna Philharmonic under the baton of Maestro Lorin Mazel. The dazzling program included works by Mozart, Sibelius and Richard Strauss with a wonderful encore of The Blue Danube Waltz. Wells Fargo underwrote the evening which for the fortunate included a post-performance dinner upstairs in the atrium, where WPAS president and CEO Neale Perl welcomed guests. Austrian Ambassador Hans Peter Manz remarked, “I am just the luckiest ambassador you could imagine. I have only been here three months and claim full responsibility for the success of this evening.”
