Simon Johnson, organist

Organist and Assistant Director of Music at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, Simon Johnson, will perform a concert featuring music of the great 19th century British composers and other works.
As well as leading the cathedral’s wide-ranging organ program, Simon accompanies the world-famous choir of men and boys and directs the Cathedral Consort. In addition to the daily round of services and events at St Paul’s, Simon has been involved in all the national occasions that have taken place there since his appointment in 2008.

Outside of St Paul’s, Simon enjoys a diverse and busy freelance schedule. Recitals have taken him all over Europe and the USA, as well as to many of the premier venues in the UK. He is on the Academic Board of The Royal College of Organists, for whom he is also an examiner.

He can be heard as both soloist and accompanist at St Paul’s on recordings for the Hyperion and Decca labels and recently took on the monumental project of recording Holst’s The Planets for Priory and more recently his transcription for organ of Cesar Franck’s Symphony in D minor for orchestra.
