Moira Johnson Consulting (MJC) specializes in the public relations, marketing and consulting services in the field of classical music, opera and performing arts.  We also take on the coordination and production of special projects and events in an array of different fields.  Our clients and projects have taken us throughout Canada, to Europe, and the United States.


Our objective is to help artists achieve their personal career goals. Our extensive experience, strong relationships in the music industry and close contact with the international media allows us to offer a wide range of support to our artists including the complete coordination of all their publicity and promotional needs, the creation of PR opportunities using social as well as traditional media, the coordination of recording projects, master-classes, gala appearances, merchandising, and personal endorsements.


We thrive on variety and are equally at home working on large and small projects. We have launched CD’s in Edinburgh and Salzburg, organized dinners in Vienna, coordinated film documentaries in Vienna, Siena, Florence, Toronto, and Winnipeg, produced gala events, organized fundraising events for the Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Team and cancer research, produced concerts, a nationally-televised gala to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Governor General of Canada, and promoted a series of recordings for CBC to honour the 2006 Mozart Anniversary year,  among many other projects.


In addition, MJC is frequently asked to give seminars to young artists on the role public relations can play in the advancement of their careers, how to use social media effectively, and how to develop techniques to help present themselves to artistic administrators, programmers, conductors, juries, professionals in the field and the public.

From profile articles and reviews to documentaries and television appearances, and from galas to CD launches, we maximize the public potential for all our clients.
