Biography
Elim Chan

One of the most sought-after artists of her generation, Elim Chan conducts an unusually wide-ranging repertoire, from Classical to contemporary symphonic works. She served as guest conductor of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra from 2018 to 2023, and became chief conductor of the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra in 2019. The 2023–24 season marks the conclusion of her tenure in Antwerp, when she presents the orchestra in the Benelux, appearing with soloists including cellist Sol Gabetta and violinist Midori.

Chan’s other 2023–24 season highlights include her debuts with the Salzburg Festival, Orchestre de Paris, Berlin Staatskapelle, Dresden Staatskapelle, Montreal’s Orchestre métropolitain, Minnesota Orchestra, and Seattle Symphony, as well as the New York Philharmonic. In Europe, she will conduct in her first collaborations with the German radio orchestras SWR Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, and WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, among others. She returns to the Los Angeles Philharmonic, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and London’s Philharmonia Orchestra. In the spring of 2023 the Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León announced a three-year collaboration with Elim Chan as associate conductor, with a focus on Stravinsky’s ballets.

A native of Hong Kong, Elim Chan studied at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, and at the University of Michigan. In 2014 she was the first woman to win the Donatella Flick Conducting Competition, which led to her spending the 2015–16 season as assistant conductor at the London Symphony Orchestra, when she worked closely with Valery Gergiev. The following season she joined the Dudamel Fellowship program of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. She also owes much to the support of Bernard Haitink, whose masterclasses she attended in 2015.
