Today on the podcast, you'll hear from Mary Lou Falcone, Founder and owner of M.L. Falcone, Public Relations
Mary Lou Falcone is internationally known as a classical music publicist/strategist who for 50 years has helped guide the careers of celebrated artists – Van Cliburn, Gustavo Dudamel, Renée Fleming, Sir Georg Solti, James Taylor – and advised many institutions including Carnegie Hall, Chicago Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic. Combining communication skills with her background as a performer and educator, she now adds another layer: advocate for Lewy body dementia (LBD) awareness. Her late husband, the illustrator Nicky Zann who died from LBD in 2020, was the catalyst for this her first book.
This conversation was so inspiring to me - Mary Lou has SO MUCH wisdom to share for musicians today about seeing opportunities, about learning on the job, about taking agency, about integrity and kindness and paying it forward. She has such beautiful words about caregiving, and she relates it so beautifully to what we do in so many realms of our lives. I wanted her to keep talking forever.
The book, I Didn't See it Coming, came out October 3 and I recommend it highly, but first please listen to this beautiful conversation.
