Music director of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, Mei-Ann Chen is one of America’s most exciting and promising young conductors. As a conducting fellow sponsored by the League of American Orchestras, she has recently concluded a highly successful tenure as assistant conductor of the Atlanta Symphony and served a one-year appointment as assistant conductor of the Baltimore Symphony. In North America, Chen has appeared as guest conductor with the symphonies of Alabama, Atlanta, Colorado, Fort Worth, Honolulu, Oregon, Seattle, Toronto, as well as the Chicago Sinfonietta, Florida Orchestra and the Rochester Philharmonic.

The first woman to win the Malko International Conductors Competition (2005), she has conducted all of the principal Danish orchestras, in addition to the symphonies of Bournemouth, Taiwan, and Trondheim. During her five-year tenure as music director of the Portland (OR) Youth Philharmonic, Mei-Ann Chen led its sold-out début in Carnegie Hall, received an ASCAP award for innovative programming, and was honoured with a Sunburst Award from Young Audiences for her contribution to music education.

A native of Taiwan, she has lived in the United States since 1989. Chen holds master’s degrees in both conducting and violin from the New England Conservatory, and a DMA in conducting from the University of Michigan.
