San Francisco, California was the top music scene in the 1960’s. It’s where the likes of Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, the Rolling Stones and many others got their start via Virginia City, Nevada. Though the music has changed over the years, great performances can still be experienced at many of the same venues these musical legends once performed. The Fillmore, Candlestick Park, Bottom of the Hill and Slims, continue to bring in some of today’s best musicians. Haight-Ashbury’s Amoeba Music Store still stands selling records and hosting live shows.
For a more classical music lover, there’s no better place than Vienna, Austria, known as the “City of Music.” The music season lasts from September through June where the music of Brahms, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Mahler, Schubert, and Strauss is celebrated. Vienna also hosts a number of other special musical events each year and the Vienna Philharmonic performing in the historic Wiener Konzerthaus is considered a must-see.
