The 15 member LES VIOLONS DU ROY takes its name from the renowned string orchestras in the courts of French kings. Under the direction of founder Bernard Labadie, they focus on chamber music from the Baroque and Classical periods, playing in the style appropriate for each era. They also delve into the 19th and 20th centuries, presenting Piazzola, Bartok and Britten.

With three Junos to their credit, Les Violons du Roy are well known across Canada and around the world. Their music is frequently heard on CBC, they’re regular guests at music festivals and since their first international performance (New York in 1995) they have been warmly welcomed in concert halls around the globe. www.violonsduroy.com/en
