The Virginia Symphony Orchestra
JoAnn Falletta, conductor
Max Holman, harpsichord
One of the leading conductors of her generation in a field historically dominated by men, Grammy-winning music director JoAnn Falletta explores the incredible contributions of women in music, both modern and throughout history. More recently, the shift toward the inclusion and recognition of women’s achievements in the fields of fine and performing arts offers a rich heritage for exploration and discussion. As one of the early champions of the cause of new music including pieces composed and popularized by women, JoAnn leads the Orchestra in a performance which will both entertain and inspire.
