Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Music Director JoAnn Falletta had an interesting experience. Falletta appears as one of six inspiring women for the Macy's fall ad campaign. WBFO's senior reporter Eileen Buckley talked to Falletta about how the advertisement is design to empower women.
Falletta appears in a stunning black dress in an ad called “Remarkable You". She is featured with other career women; an aerospace engineer, fourth grade teacher, public defender, civil engineer and NBA assistant coach.
Falletta appeared in our WBFO studio to discuss her experience. She said it was a “thrilling” and "surreal" event.
“They want classical music involved – that was just like ‘yes’ – they are going to let an orchestra in this commercial," Falletta told WBFO News. "I went to Hollywood and I spend three, crazy, frightening, confusing, glamorous, surreal days in what is the world of making a commercial. I think it’s an experience I will never forget."
