He earned a Bachelor of Music Degree in Organ Performance in 2000 and a Master of Music Degree in Organ Performance in 2005. Johnny has served as the Director of Music & Worship for Ss. Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church on Detroit’s west-side since 1999. In addition to overseeing the Music Ministry at Ss. Peter and Paul, he also coordinates their yearly concert series, which he founded in 2002, that showcases talent at the local, national, and international level.
Johnny performs in concert periodically throughout the Detroit area, the United States, and Europe. In 2007 he gave a series of recitals in Poland, Denmark, and Sweden. In 2011 Johnny performed a series of recitals in Poland, this being his fourth visit to the country since 2002. Johnny also enjoys collaborating with other musicians to provide concerts for organ plus other instruments. Past concerts have included organ & brass, organ & flute, organ & french horn, organ & voice, and most notably - DUELING ORGANS (Combining the classic organ with the theatre organ!). However most of his playing can be heard during the hundreds of church services, weddings, funerals, graduations, and other liturgical events that he performs for throughout the year.
Johnny resides in Northville, MI with his wife, Gabriela, and their two sons, Sebastian and Dominic.
Gabriela works at SS. Peter and Paul Parish. She is the Parish Secretary as well as the Director of Music for Polish Worship. Together, Gabriela and Johnny plan and provide music for all English, Polish, and Bilingual services.
When not in church and performing, Johnny and the family enjoy traveling. They began a series of day trips titled "Tuesday Travels" in 2013 to take advantage of their only day off during the week. It has become a highly anticipated yearly tradition where they seek out family friendly things to experience, great places to eat, and anything else on the road they find fun and interesting!
