Ali & Johnny

Classical duo, classic Nelson venue

French-American-Canadian duo Ali & Johnny bring their extensive classical training to the Kootenays for a concert at Touchstones Nelson

French-American-Canadian duo Ali & Johnny bring their extensive classical training to the Kootenays for a concert at Touchstones Nelson this coming Thursday.

The duo takes music they love and creates new arrangements for their own instruments: violin and clarinet.

The unique program will blend duos from the classical repertoire spanning four centuries with folk tunes from Hungary, Spain, Sweden and Canada.

The concert will take place in the intimate setting of Touchstones Nelson, surrounded by Deborah Thompson’s striking exhibition, Tales from the Underworld.

Violinist Ali Luthmers and clarinetist Johnny Teyssier graduated from the Colburn School Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles in 2011. Their careers will soon be taking them to Sweden, where Johnny was recently appointed principal clarinet of the Malmö Symphony Orchestra.

They are thrilled to be spending some time in the Kootenays with Luthmers’ family, longtime residents of Nelson.

Ali & Johnny will be performing at the Touchstones Museum in Nelson on May 24 at 7 p.m. Admission is by donation, and entry to the museum is also by donation.
