Ben returns to conduct the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra this month with concerts on 4 and 6 May at Symphony Hall.
The programme features Beethoven Symphony No.2, Haydn Trumpet Concerto, Guy Barker Trumpet Concerto (Lantern of Light), with Alison Balsom on the trumpet and Dvorák Symphony No.8.
A recent performance by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra of Beethoven Symphony No.3 'Eroica' conducted by Ben received high acclaim in the press:
"Gernon knows how to give his musicians the freedom to do what they do best."
