Simon Johnson is one of the most versatile musicians of his generation, successfully combining life as a virtuoso organist with extensive work in choral direction, composition and arrangement.
As the Organist and Assistant Director of Music at St Paul's Cathedral, London, he has been involved in all the national occasions that have taken place there since his appointment in 2008, including the funeral service of Baroness Thatcher, the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen and Her Majesty's 90th Birthday celebrations, for which he also arranged some of the music.
Recitals have taken him all over Europe and the USA, as well as to many of the premier venues in the UK, including the Royal Festival Hall in 2017.
