In 2016 John made his debut with the BBC Concert Orchestra in concerts for the William Alwyn Festival and the Malcolm Arnold Festival that were subsequently broadcast on Radio 3. He also conducted the orchestra in the centenary presentation of the film 'The Battle of the Somme' at the Royal Festival Hall. He works regularly with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and has conducted most of the major British orchestras.

John has conducted over forty acclaimed opera productions including an array of Italian operas at Opera Holland Park and has been Principal Conductor of Worthing Symphony Orchestra - the professional orchestra of West Sussex - for nearly twenty years. John’s career reflects his belief in working with musicians over a sustained period of time, a process best exemplified by his work with Ealing Symphony Orchestra who celebrated their 90th anniversary with a Charles Ives concert world premiere, the UK premiere of Nors Josephson's completion of Bruckner's Ninth Symphony and the world premiere concert performance of the William Alwyn Violin Concerto. These concerts typify John’s provocative and stimulating programming which have successfully introduced many rarities from around the world in programmes balanced with popular classics that are attractive to the ordinary concert goer. John is also Music Director of Northampton Symphony Orchestra
