KENNETH JEAN

Born in New York City, Kenneth Jean grew up in Hong Kong and returned to the United States in 1967 to live in San Francisco. After violin studies at San Francisco State University, he entered the Julliard School at the age of nineteen and was accepted into the conducting class of Jean Morel. The following year he made his Carnegie Hall début with the Youth Symphony Orchestra of New York and was immediately engaged as the orchestra’s music director.

For two seasons, Kenneth Jean was conducting assistant of the Cleveland Orchestra. From 1979 until 1985, he served as resident conductor of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In 1990, he was one of two recipients of the prestigious Seaver/National Endowment for the Arts Conductor Award, which is given biannually to exceptional American conductors.

He has been the music director of the Florida Symphony Orchestra, associate conductor of the Chicago Symphony, and principal guest conductor of the Hong Kong Philharmonic. In 1997, he became music director of the Tulsa Philharmonic. He has recorded works by Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Falla, Albeniz and Ravel for Naxos, and Chinese contemporary works for Marco Polo.
