Conductor Interview

JoAnn Falletta
I recently spoke with conductor JoAnn Falletta while she was in Pennsylvania conducting the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia. We crossed paths in Wichita a few years back and had a delightful conversation, and she's really done amazing musical work, so it was nice to have another chat: from her poetry, commissioning new works, her start in conducting and much more.
Here's some of our conversation at the Union League of Philadelphia lounge.

Part 2 (closing) Talking about career goals [mp3 file]

Keep an ear out for more of the interview on WITF-FM.
