Tenor Will Johnson – Rock Climber Extraordinaire

We have some of the most talented musicians in the business, and beyond the concert stage, many of them lead fascinating lives.

One such musician is Tafelmusik Chamber Choir member Will Johnson, who’s representing Canada as a member of the Canadian National Bouldering Team (ie. ‘rock climbing’) at three World Cup IFSC Events in Switzerland, India, and Austria in April and May of this year.

Will has been rock climbing for just over 20 years, and is currently ranked 10th in Canada, securing him a position on the Open Canadian National Team!

And of course, Will is also an incredible performer, having represented Canada at the World Youth Choir and the Festival Choir in Stuttgart.

And then of course, you can cheer him on at performances next week of our Zelenka and Bach concerts, our final choral concert of the year.

Happy Weekend!
