Paolo Bortolameolli holds a Master of Music degree, a Graduate Performance Diploma, a Piano Performance Diploma and a Conducting Diploma. He is Music Director of the National Symphonic Orchestra Esperanza Azteca (México) and Principal Guest Conductor of Filarmónica de Santiago (Chile). Having conducted every significant orchestra in his homeland (Chili) he has connected strong conducting relationships across Latin and North America, Europe and Asia. 

His most recent activities include return engagements in Poland with the Polish National Radio Symphonic Orchestra, in Italy with the Orchestra Haydn, in Venezuela with the Symphonic Orchestra Simón Bolivar and in the United States with San Francisco, the Kansas City, and the Charlotte Symphonic Orchestras, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic as well. His performances with the LA Philharmonic include a new production of Meredith Monk’s ATLAS, performed at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles in 2019. 

Paolo Bortolameolli is committed to new music and audiences. Among recent commissions, we can name Miguel Farías’s Estallido, performed for its world premiere at the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He has also developed innovative projects such as “Ponle Pausa”, a programme seeking to rethink the concept of music education through the implementation of short videos and concerts targeting social network users. In 2018 he was a guest-lecturer for a TED Talk in New York and in 2020 he published his first book, RUBATO Procesos musicales y una playlist personal. 

Future engagements include performances at the Gran Teatre del Liceu for The Magic Flute, a series of concerts in Chili (Mahler’s Symphony n°2) with the Santiago Philharmonic. He will make his debut at the Michigan Opera Theater in Golijov’s Ainadamar.
