Conductor JoAnn Falletta
When JoAnn Falletta became a conductor, she was one of the few women in the world to hold that post. Today, Falletta travels around the globe, leading three well-known orchestras—the Buffalo Philharmonic, the Virginia Symphony and the Ulster, in Northern Ireland. An important part of the job, she says, is recognizing and encouraging the talent around her. “The greatness comes from the team, the musicians,” she says. In this video, Falletta conducts the Brevard Music Center Orchestra in a performance of Schmidt's Intermezzo from Notre Dame.
