Los Angeles Philharmonic Announces Dudamel Fellows for 2022/23

Conductors Luis Toro Araya, Rodolfo Barráez, Chloé Dufresne, and Linhan Cui will work with the orchestra and Music Director Gustavo Dudamel


The Los Angeles Philharmonic announced the four conductors selected as the 2023/23 Dudamel Fellows: Luis Toro Araya (Chile), Rodolfo Barráez (Venezuela), Chloé Dufresne (France), and Linhan Cui (China).

Developed by the LA Phil's Music Director Gustavo Dudamel, the Fellowship Program has been running since 2009. It provides opportunities for the selected conductors to work alongside Dudamel and the orchestra, as well as with visiting artists and conductors, to hone their conducting skills through both observation and application.

Araya and Dufresne will each lead two of the orchestra's Symphonies for Schools concerts in March, while Barráez will conduct the Pasadena Youth Concerts and Cui will lead performances of Symphonies for Youth: Sisterhood.

"Each year, I cherish the experience of working with our extraordinary Fellows," wrote Gustavo Dudamel on social media.

"Bringing these emerging talents from all different backgrounds to my Los Angeles Philharmonic and having the chance to work with them onstage and in the community is a constant source of inspiration and joy. It is the kind of work that helps us all grow together as artists and as humans."
