Born in Hong Kong, Stephen Lam has been described as “undoubtedly a man of passion who lives for the music...” (Adam Rozlach, Polish Radio), and is recognised as one of the most outstanding young conductors in the recent years. Highly commended by Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti and Christoph Eschenbach, Lam is currently the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the Ponte Orchestra and Singers, one of the most in-demand orchestras in Hong Kong in the field of choral and symphonic music, as well as the Associate Conductor of the Macao Youth Symphony Orchestra. 

Recently accepted as one of the few selected apprentice under Maestro Riccardo Muit in Italian Opera Academy, Lam has worked with orchestras around the world, including the King’s Philharmonic (London), St. Petersburg Chamber Philharmonic (Russia), Sichuan Chamber Philharmonic (China), Seoul Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra de Royal Opera de Liege-Wallonie (Belgium), Silesian Philharmonic Orchestra (Poland), and the Chamber Ensemble of Orchestra Cadaques (Spain). Lam has also received critical success as an operatic conductor, including “Die lustige Witwe” and “Cosi fan tutti” with Webern Symphony Orchestra in Vienna as well as “Carmen” with Musica Viva in Hong Kong.

Lam is also a dedicated educator and ardent advocate of community outreach, and his collaboration with young musicians has been widely praised. He is also a regular guest professor and conductor in Sichuan Music Conservatory in China, and was a member of the jury at the 2018 Belt & Road World Choir Festival, Maribor European Grand Prix in Slovenia, Czech Music Festival in Hradec Kralove, and Artistic Co-ordinator of 2019 World Choral Conducting Competition.

Lam studied conducting at the prestigious University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna, where he was one of the last students of Uros Lajovic, Ordner Edwin, and Konrad Leitner, and also one of the few selected to conduct the Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna at the Musikverein. An extraordinary multifaceted musician, Lam also holds a Bachelor degree of Environmental Science from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a Master of Arts in Literary and Comparative Literature from the University of Hong Kong.
