Fresh from winning her third Grammy Award, conductor JoAnn Falletta will lead the Buffalo Philharmonic Monday at the Kravis Center.

Falletta, who has been the Buffalo orchestra’s music director since 1999, won the award for a disc of music by the American composer Kenneth Fuchs with the London Symphony Orchestra. She is the latest in a line of formidable conductors who have served as music directors of the Buffalo Philharmonic, including William Steinberg, Josef Krips, Lukas Foss, Michael Tilson Thomas and Semyon Bychkov.

The concert of 19th- and 20th-century classics will be the Buffalo Philharmonic’s third appearance at Kravis in five years. At the orchestra’s 2016 Kravis performance, South Florida Classical Review described the ensemble, founded in 1934, as a “fine regional orchestra with a top-tier string section.”

On the program is Borodin’s Prince Igor Overture, Selections from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet and Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 with soloist Fabio Bidini.

The performance is 8 p.m. Monday at the Kravis Center.; 561-832-7469
