Ali Luthmer Teyssier

After completing my modern violin studies at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, I moved to Sweden in 2012 and began pursuing my true love, Baroque violin, which I had been studying since age 15. Since moving to Europe I have been performing and touring with Camerata Øresund, Concerto Copenhagen, and Barokksolistene among others, and especially love to play chamber music with the wonderful musicians of these orchestras. Through a grant from the Canada Arts Council, I was able to spend two years studying the connections between Scandinavian folk music, early music and dance. I have combined all these musical interests in my project BookJam, a series of informal chamber music concerts at a bookshop in Malmö, where I live with my husband and daughter.
