Elim Chan

Elim Chan is convinced that conducting is “a marriage between brain, heart and body”. As she goes on to explain, “You need to express music with your hands and to develop a confident and authentic language.” The precision of this young artist’s gestures, combined with the natural plasticity of her way of shaping of the music, has been hugely admired not only in North America but also in Europe.

In January 2022, the Boston Classical Review spoke of a “marvel of control and understanding” following Elim Chan’s debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, while her first appearance with the Cleveland Orchestra only a few months later elicited a no less enthusiastic response. The orchestra, cleveland.org enthused, was on top form and “tantalizingly close to ideal”.

No other conductor of her generation is as sought after by top-flight orchestras in both North America and Europe, no other can be found working with comparably outstanding soloists. Born in Hong Kong in 1986, Elim Chan performs an unusually wide-ranging repertory of symphonic works extending from the Classical period to the present day.
