The London Symphony Orchestra is widely regarded to be one of the world’s leading orchestras. Resident at the Barbican in London, the LSO presents over 70 concerts there each year. Michael Francis came to prominence as a conductor in January 2007 when he stepped out of the double bass section to replace an indisposed Valery Gergiev for a concert with the London Symphony Orchestra.
