JoAnn Falletta, Conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic, Joins the Club
You saw her guest conduct the Sarasota Orchestra last February and now she returns to the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on Monday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m., courtesy of the Sarasota Concert Association, to conduct her very own orchestra, the Grammy Award-winning Buffalo Philharmonic.
For their Florida tour, conductor JoAnn Falletta, the Buffalo Philharmonic, and guest violin soloist Sandy Cameron will present Kodaly's Dances of Galánta, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, and Dvorak's Symphony No. 7. Tickets are available from the Sarasota Concert Association by going to SCASarasota.org or by calling 941-966-6161.
JoAnn joins Robyn on the podcast this week to talk about her shift from guitar player to conductor, the incredible amount of organization involved in taking a symphony orchestra on tour, and just which movie gets her vote: Tár or Mr. Holland's Opus?
All that and more on this week's episode of the Suncoast Culture Club podcast. Come along and join the club!
