Dominique Johnson

Broadcaster Dominique Johnson's love of classical music and radio began early. Growing up in the Midwest, she started out as a young announcer, writing, producing and hosting classical music and fine arts programs. She also worked in various capacities for public radio stations in the Chicagoland area and at the Interlochen Center for the Arts where she studied radio production. A violinist for nearly her entire life, she also performed with chamber ensembles as a violist at Bryn Mawr College while a student there. She was supported by an ACMP/The Chamber Music Network grant at the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music and was a visiting music student at Goldsmiths, University of London. She is a proud Norwalk resident.

Dominique is thrilled to join the great WMNR family. She enjoys discovering new recordings and works, especially by emerging performers and contemporary composers, and loves sharing them with WMNR listeners. Always excited about new musical adventures, she enjoys playing bluegrass fiddle and recently began to learn to play the mandolin. She is passionate about igniting interest in classical music among younger listeners and exploring its intersections with other genres. 

Join Dominique on air Fridays from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and follow her on Twitter @GenXClassical.
