“JoAnn Falletta has signed a new contract with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra that extends her tenure as music director for three more seasons, with an option to renew for two additional years. Falletta is finishing her 20th year with the symphony.

“Since being hired in 1991, Falletta has transformed the orchestra into a highly respected group with a national reputation. She led the symphony at Carnegie Hall in New York in 1997 and three years later at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. She has conducted the symphony for 14 recordings. Later this month, she will lead the symphony in a program of works by the prominent Virginia Beach composer Adolphus Hailstork to be recorded by Naxos, the world's leading classical music label.” [Adolphus C.
