Home' F and V : WAs Best Functions and Venues 2012 Contents A far cry from the outrageous festivities in Rio de Janeiro,
Vienna marks the lead up to Lent with the opulent Vienna
Philharmonic Ball. Since its inception in 1924, each year (except
for during the Second World War and Gulf War) esteemed
concert auditorium the Musikverein is transformed into a
spectacular ballroom. The evening unfolds with the entrances
of dignitaries before a performance from the world-famous
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
WHY IT WORKS
Upheld traditions | Ladies arrive in floor-length gowns and
gentlemen don tails, tuxedos or uniform, which maintains the strong
sense of class and elegance that is synonymous with the event.
Young debutants dance the Viennese Waltz as they are presented to
society, and each lady in attendance is also welcomed with a special
gift by members of the Philharmonic.
Nothing encapsulates the beauty of Japan like the annual Cherry Blossom
Festival. Weather permitting, each March and April sees cherry trees erupt
into bursts of fuchsia and pale pink blooms, marking the start of spring.
The festival is typically celebrated with music, dancing and tea ceremonies.
Locals view it as a chance to socialise with friends and family while enjoying
picnics underneath canopies of blossoms.
WHY IT WORKS
Natural beauty | The chance to marvel at the beautiful cherry blossoms
in their native place is a major tourist drawcard.
Cultural immersion | Visitors can partake in traditional Japanese tea
ceremonies and other traditional delights.
Dream view | A plethora of photo opportunities is available for the
amateur and seasoned photographer alike.
