Re-posting Per Colleague and "Soul Stringer: World Class Violinist JoAnna Johnson
Supporter:Keith V Gilchrist‎/Jazzman Music Network of Friends Jazzman Music Artist Of The Week is JoAnna Johnson "The Soul Stringer" JoAnna, was born and raised in Detroit Michigan. The only daughter of seven children, JoAnna asked to play the violin from the time anyone can remember her talking. No one knows why she chose that instrument but a great choice it was. JoAnna blossomed as a student of the Detroit Community Music School where she furthered her training using the Suzuki Method. Known from a very early age as the girl who heard everything, she used her ability to play by ear to help write and compose the 80's hit Sweet November for both the band and orchestra to perform at her 8th grade graduation. During this time she also competed in many MSBOA (Michigan State Band and Orchestra Association) competitions where she received numerous 1st place ribbons. She auditioned for the Detroit Symphony Civic Orchestra in 1984 where she continued to play through both Junior High and all of High School. Upon graduation she received a number of school offers including a full scholarship to Jackson State University. Although she did not attend this university, JoAnna continued to submerge herself into music and became a member of the Detroit Metropolitan Orchestra. JoAnna brings a sensuous, sultry, elegant, sassy yet classy vibe to the art of strings. She has always felt like music heals people and can touch the very depths of one’s soul. Finding healing in music for herself, JoAnna's goal is to touch the souls of many and allow music to speak and heal. She has already done many studio recordings for various artists and a number of live performances throughout the area. Look out for her as she continues on her journey to fill many hearts with the joys of music. Stay tuned for various performances and her solo project coming soon.
