Ben Gernon, 27, has left AskonasHolt to join Intermusica for general management.

Winner of the 2013 Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductor’s Award and a former Dudamel Fellow in Los Angeles, Ben seemed to be doing nicely in his career but something has clearly gone askew.

It’s unusual – albeit decisive – for a young artist to drop one major agency for another.




  • Halldor says:

    He’s doing pretty well in his career – conducting the Chicago Symphony on Tuesday!
    Glowing review from earlier this month here.

    By all accounts, he’s got a pretty level head on his shoulders. Whatever the reasons for his change of agent they’ll be sound ones. AH’s loss, that’s for sure.
