Ben Gernon

Ben is a hugely exciting, award winning young conductor and broadcaster who works with some of the world’s most prestigious orchestras.  His TV credits include BBC Two’s Holst: The Planets with Professor Brian Cox, Channel 4’s Addicts’ Symphony, Inside Classical for BBC iPlayer, BBC Proms and BBC Young Musician for BBC Four and YolanDa’s Band Jam for CBeebies.


He is co-presenter of the podcast Monsters of Music with Tom Allen on BBC Sounds, and has written and presented a wide range of documentaries and features for BBC Radio 3. These include The Silent Musician, a three part series revealing the secrets of conducting and a docudrama starring Alex Jennings, What Walls Hold, exploring Tavistock House, the home of Victorian celebrities. He is a regular guest on Record Review and his performances with the BBC Philharmonic are broadcast across the network.


For Radio 4 Ben wrote and presented The Ministry of Fun – an Archive on Four about the cringeworthy relationships between artists and politicians. He has also appeared on Add to Playlist and Front Row.
