Young People’s Concert: New Voices – Composing Inclusion

May 06


How does a composition for orchestra come into being? Join us for this inaugural event featuring young musicians from Juilliard’s Music Advancement Program (MAP) and the Philharmonic’s Very Young Composers as we explore a newly commissioned work by composer Trevor Weston, from its inception to World Premiere.

Arrive early for YPC Overtures, on the Leon and Norma Hess Grand Promenade and Hearst Tier 1, where children can try out orchestral instruments and families can engage in crafting and interactive workshops. Activities begin at 1:00 PM.

  • Paolo Bortolameolli


    Paolo Bortolameolli is music director of the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional Juvenil (in Chile), Sinfónica Azteca (México), principal guest conductor of Filarmónica de Santiago (Opera Nacional de Chile), and associate conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He has also led ensembles such as the Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar (Caracas) and Orquesta Filarmónica de Buenos Aires; the Kansas City, Charlotte, Houston, and San Francisco symphony orchestras; and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In Europe he regularly returns as guest to the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Haydn (Bolzano), Helsinki Philharmonic, and Orchestra della Toscana (Florence).

    His insatiable artistic curiosity brings him in equal measure to the opera stage, with recent and upcoming projects including Opéra de Paris (Puccini’s Tosca) and Gran Teatre del Liceu (Mozart’s The Magic Flute), as well as Ópera Nacional de Chile for concerts with the Filarmónica (Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, Resurrection), and Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional Juvenil (Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, Symphony of a Thousand). He will make his debut at Michigan Opera Theater in Osvaldo Golijov’s Ainadamar in 2023.

    Bortolameolli’s long relationship with the Los Angeles Philharmonic continues through 2023, where he will conduct concerts at the Hollywood Bowl and Walt Disney Concert Hall. Alongside subscription and summer performances, notable past performances include a landmark new production of Meredith Monk’s inventive opera ATLAS, performed at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles in 2019.

    Paolo Bortolameolli is passionately committed to education, and as artistic director of the Sinfónica Azteca he leads the educational residency run by the Fundación Azteca from Grupo Salinas in Mexico every year. He has developed several new media initiatives with the Esperanza Azteca in Mexico, and his now-legendary Ponle Pausa — a project that seeks to rethink the concept of music education through the implementation of short videos and concerts targeting social network users — has received wide acclaim.

    Paolo Bortolameolli holds a master’s degree from Yale School of Music (2013), a graduate performance diploma from Peabody Institute (2015), a piano performance diploma from Universidad Católica de Chile (2006), and a conducting diploma from  the Universidad de Chile (2011).
