JoAnn Falletta grew up playing classical guitar, but what she really wanted to do was conduct orchestras. There wasn't a path for a female conductor to follow... so Falletta paved a path of her own and is now a respected conductor around the world. On today's show, JoAnn Falletta conducts the Buffalo Philharmonic in a concert performance of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21.
