Ben returns to the US to make his debut with the Houston Symphony Orchestra on 30 June. 

Performing to an audience of over 6,000 at the Miller Outdoor Theatre, Ben will be joined by George Li for Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto.

Afterwards, he conducts Mendelssohn’s lesser-known First Symphony, written when the composer was just 15 years old. A favourite of Ben’s, this symphony featured in his debut performance with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic earlier this year and he takes it to the Czech Philharmonic this coming October.
