Posted on: August 16, 2016

“The Los Angeles Philharmonic has chosen its three Dudamel fellows for 2016-17,” writes Susan Elliott on Tuesday (8/16) at musicalamerica.com (password-protected). Each “will have the opportunity to work with and shadow [LA Phil Music Director Gustavo Dudamel] as well as other conductors, and to conduct the Youth Orchestra of LA (YOLA).”  The fellows are Paulo Bortolameolli, from Chile, a semifinalist in this year’s Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition who has served as cover conductor at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and principal conductor of the New Haven (Conn.) Chamber Orchestra; Hong Kong native Elim Chan, first female winner (in 2014) of the London Symphony Orchestra’s Donatella Flick LSO Conducting Competition and assistant conductor of the LSO last season; and Kachun Wong, from Singapore, winner of the 2016 Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition, who next season will “oversee concerts with the China Philharmonic, Guangzhou Symphony, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Singapore Lyric Opera, St. Petersburg Symphony, and Tokyo Philharmonic among others.”
