Music for Organ, brass and percussion
featuring the Peachtree Chancel Choir
Friday, February 28, 2014
Suggested donation $10.00 at the door
This will be a remarkable concert featuring a remarkable young organist! Simon Johnson is the Organist & Assistant Director of Music at St Paul’s Cathedral in London, where he presides over the five-manual Willis/Mander organ, one of the finest musical instruments in the world. This concert will feature Simon’s most recent composition, “Gloria”, for choir, organ, brass and percussion, commissioned by the Peachtree Church to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of Nicholas Bowden as our Principal organist.
ABOUT SIMON JOHNSON…
“A brilliant and sensitive musician…achieving greatness through his calm demeanor” (Gramophone), Simon’s work as a soloist, accompanist, improviser, choir director, composer, editor and arranger makes him one of the most versatile church musicians working today and this has led to a series of appointments. He held organ scholarships at Rochester, Norwich and St Paul’s Cathedrals, before becoming Director of Music at All Saints’ Church, Northampton and then Assistant Master of Music and Director of the Abbey Girls’ Choir at St Albans Cathedral. He took up his present position in 2008.
In addition to the daily round of services at St Paul’s, Simon also plays for all the important national services and events that take place there, most recently at the funeral service of former Prime Minister, the Baroness Margaret Thatcher. Last year Simon played for the national service of thanksgiving to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen, for which he also arranged some of the music.
Simon has worked as soloist and continuo player with the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Mozart Players, City of London Sinfonia, London Baroque and The Cardinall’s Musick.
Most recently, Simon has made a DVD (posted on YouTube) about the St Paul’s Organ, in which one can “appreciate Johnson’s musical sensitivity, and deceptively easy fluency in even the most hair-raising of repertoire” (Choir and Organ): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxaqkd6eqqk
A recitalist all over the world, Simon has recently premiered a new piece for organ by Peter Maxwell Davies as part of the City of London Festival and another by Robert Walker for the Festival of St Cecilia in Westminster Abbey.
