Los Angeles Philharmonic Announces Dudamel Fellowship Recipients

The four new fellows will receive personal mentorship and participate in the LA Phil’s orchestral, education, and community programs


Created in 2009 by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and their Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, the Dudamel Fellowship Program aims to help young conductors develop their craft.

The four fellows include:

  • François López-Ferrer (Spain / US)
  • Chloé van Soeterstède (France)
  • Camilo Téllez (Columbia)
  • Enluis Montes Olivar (Venezuela)

In addition to working alongside Dudamel, musicians of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and visiting artists, the new cohort will also work with students in key LA Phil education programs.

They will have the opportunity to conduct the Los Angeles Philharmonic youth concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall, participate as cover conductors, and serve as mentors themselves through participation in programs such as Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA).

"This is a great honor for a young Columbian, who arrived here five years ago with a suitcase full of dreams, eager to learn from the best artists in the world," Camilo Téllez wrote on his Instagram. "Thank you to the LA Phil for this incredible opportunity."

"The most important and fulfilling part of my work is to mentor extraordinary young people," Dudamel has said.
