Dorn Music has signed the Chinese conductor Yue Bao for worldwide General Management.

She is presently conducting fellow at the Houston Symphony with Andrés Orozco-Estrada. Before that, she served two years as conducting fellow at the Curtis, working with Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

In 2019, Bao toured China with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, assisting Andrés Orozco-Estrada.


  • Someone who knows says:

    She was not Yannicks assistant but his student!

  • Mr. Schwa says:

    I wish I were a woman: it would guarantee me a conducting career.
    Maybe a sex change…

    • Gossip Girl says:

      Shame on you. To even suggest that her merits are gender-based is blithely disrespectful and speaks to your own work ethic. Don’t be anonymous—let others know how sexist you are so we can all avoid you.

  • Paul Berk says:

    I heard her conduct when she was a student at Mannes and she’s terrific. A real talent.
