A Kansas City-based pianist, Johnson has performed at a variety of new music venues, including the 2013 Seoul International Computer Music Festival, the 2011 Thailand International Composition Festival, the Electronic Music Midwest, and the Electro Acoustic Barn Dance. She can be heard on Irritable Hedgehog’s 2012 release of Scott Blasco’s “Queen of Heaven.”

Johnson”s playing has been praised for its firm musicality and “sensitivities that are rather extraordinary.” Johnson actively seeks collaborations with both up-and-coming and established composers, and enjoys introducing electronic music to new audiences.

This event is free and open to the public.

Financial assistance for this project has been provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
