Beverley Johnston is one of Canada's leading percussionists, performing, touring and broadcasting a wide array of compositions, both new and old. She is an accomplished orchestral and chamber musician, as well as an internationally celebrated solo touring artist, both in recital and with orchestra. Her exciting performances have been distinguished as non-conventional, effectively combining classical transcriptions, contemporary music and a touch of theatre.
She has released four solo albums: Impact (nominated for a JUNO award in 1987) and Alternate Currents for the Centrediscs label, Marimbach on CBC Records' Musica Viva label and just released her 4th solo recording called Garden Of Delights (available through her website).
Since the millennium, Ms. Johnston has been busy with concerto performances and recital programs across North America. Beverley Johnston studied at Vanier College in her native Montreal and at the University of Toronto where she now teaches.
