It comes as no surprise as the well-known Julie Andrews of "The Sound of Music" fame, and with many years working with PBS, will become the voice for the broadcast of Vienna's New Year's concert that will be playing a long line of quality classical music.

Julie Andrews in Austria: hardly an unfamiliar sight, both in movie history and now on New Year‘s Day.


The Oscar, Emmy and Grammy winner filmed one of her most famous roles in that country, Maria in the 1965 screen classic “The Sound of Music.” Along with her elegant and cultured image, that made her a natural to succeed the late Walter Cronkite as host of PBS‘ traditional “Great Performances” broadcast of the Vienna Philharmonic‘s holiday concert, and she‘ll fill that role for the fourth time when “From Vienna: The New Year‘s Celebration 2013” airs Tuesday.
