JoAnn Falletta Named 2019 Classical Woman of the Year
Acclaimed conductor JoAnn Falletta was named Performance Today's 2019 Classical Woman of the Year. The award, which was given for the first time, honors the women who have made a lasting impact on classical music or those who love music.
Throughout the month of March, listeners to American Public Media's Performance Today nominated classical performers, composers, conductors, music teachers or supporters, with the primary qualification being a significant contribution to the art form. The inaugural award for this classical music industry honor was selected from more than 120 nominees, by the staff of Performance Today based on listener feedback.
