Whoa! Somebody talented decided to STAY in Buffalo!!
In a pleasing development that marks a switch from Buffalo's usual modus operandi of being a stopping-point on the way to the proverbial "bigger and better things", conductor JoAnn Falletta -- music director of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra -- has signed on for three more years, which means that Falletta will be here at least through 2008. Since Falletta has been the major driving force behind the BPO's artistic resurgence over the last few years, this is great news indeed.
