“Some believe conductors are born, not made. Linhan Cui is human embodiment of that idea.” Andrew Mellor

Conductor Linhan Cui has established herself as a sought-after artist, winning the second prize in the Malko International Conducting Competition in 2021.

During the 2019-2020 season, Linhan was appointed Conducting Fellow by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra where she had the privilege of serving as Marin Alsop’s cover conductor.

As an Assistant Conductor, Linhan has worked with many renowned conductors such as Leon Fleisher and Xian Zhang.
