Ben Palmer

Conductor and composer Ben Palmer is on a mission to conduct all the Haydn symphonies - all 106 of them.  Today we talked about a mutual love of Haydn and our various ways of coping with life after playing the trumpet while taking a bunch of new shots for his site and upcoming CD.  He is about to conduct his 100th concert with the Orchestra of St Paul's and if you're lucky you might be able to get a ticket to their Snowman/Peter and the Wolf concerts at the Southbank Centre on Saturday 14 December.

Follow him @ConductorBen and see more of the shots we took today appearing soon on his site at
