HOLA is very excited to welcome Juan Felipe Molano as the conductor of the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles. He is currently the Artistic Director of El Sistema Salinas in California and for the last 6 years has been the National Symphonic Director of Batuta Colombian National System of Youth Orchestras, where he divides his musical activities between pedagogy and conducting. Juan graduated with honors from the Vienna Conservatory.

Juan served as the Music Director and Principal Conductor of Yucatan Symphony Orchestra in Mexico from 2003-2008, which has since become one of Mexico’s most prestigious orchestras. He has appeared with orchestras in Spain, Italy, Germany, Norway, Slovakia and Austria. Juan has also led prominent orchestras in Colombia, Mexico, Brasil and the USA: YOA Orchestra of Americas, Bogota Philharmonic, Colombian National Symphony, Cali Philharmonic, Medellin Philharmonic, Jove Orquestra de la Generalitat Valenciana, Euskadi Ikasleen Orkestra, OSUANL, Morelia Symphony, Mexico Politecnico Nacional Symphony, working with world-renowned artists, including Placido Domingo, Ryu Goto, Cuarteto Latinoamericano and Ilya Gringolts. He is a frequent presenter for the El Sistema movement around the world.

We look forward to welcoming Juan to HOLA’s campus and seeing him work with the 300 students in the YOLA at HOLA program!
