Ben Gernon (conductor)

In 2013 Ben Gernon won the internationally-acclaimed Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductor’s Award, a unanimous decision by the jury, led by Ingo Metzmacher. Gernon was appointed a Gustavo Dudamel Conducting Fellow with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 2013–14, returning to them in 2016 to conduct the ensemble at the Hollywood Bowl performance of Igor Stravinsky’s The Firebird. Also in 2016, Gernon made his Ravinia Festival debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Gernon works with all the major London and BBC orchestras including London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia, London Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Further afield he has conducted Beethoven’s Choral Symphony with Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, toured with Camerata Salzburg and had two visits with Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

Gernon has conducted two BBC Proms: the first in 2012 when he participated in a BBC Proms ‘Composer Portrait’ for Tansy Davies, and again in 2014 with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra which featured the music of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies on the occasion of his eightieth birthday.

In the opera house, Gernon has conducted Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro for Stuttgart Opera and Don Giovanni for Glyndebourne Touring Opera. He conducted a specially-crafted arrangement of Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail at the Salzburg Festival to critical acclaim.

Gernon studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and is mentored by Sian Edwards and, until his death, the late Sir Colin Davis.

In 2013, BBC Music Magazine featured him as their ‘Rising Star: Great artist of tomorrow’.
