Patricia Johnston (France)
Producer, co-founder Taklit Publishing & Production
A graduate in International Studies from the University of Washington in Seattle, Patricia co-runs Taklit, an agency specializing in production, publishing, artist management, concert & tour management. Patricia entered the world of music at age 8 after having heard violinist, William Boyd make his violin speak during a school presentation of orchestral instruments.
What she heard was in fact a piece of jazz called the Hot Canary. That experience is at the base of a career choice merging culture, education, music production and communication. Executive producer for harmonia mundi, the oldest independent record company in the world, Taklit launched the LittleVillage label for young people in 2015 and the harmonia nova collection for young classical talent in 2017. Patricia has worked for many years for jazz guitarist and composer, Gilad Hekselman and Swiss trombonist and composer, Samuel Blaser (trombone).
