M. Zachary Johnson is the creator of The Boston Tea Party Opera, which premiered at the New York International Fringe Festival, and which Curtainup.com dubbed “opera with a conscience.”
Johnson’s The Can Opener: A Brief Horror Musical premiered to sold-out audiences at the NYC Players Theater Boo! Festival and continued at the FRIGID NY Festival.
Reviewing Johnson’s classical saxophone music, About.com declared, “If this is the direction classical music is heading, well, I’d say the future will be full of wonderful music!”
Both of Johnson's books--Dancing with the Muses and Emotion in Life & Music--earned 5-star customer ratings on Amazon; Emotion in Life & Music also became a #1 bestseller in Aesthetics.
Johnson blogs on music, culture, and philosophy, and has lectured extensively on music. He teaches at the Mannes School of Music.
