Les Violons du Roy
Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Québec’s 2020–2021 Maison symphonique series
Les Violons du Roy will be back at Maison symphonique for the 2020–2021 season with four ambitious programs, two under the leadership of Les Violons du Roy music director Jonathan Cohen and two under La Chapelle de Québec music director Bernard Labadie. The season opens with the ever-fascinating Vilde Frang playing Bach violin concertos. Next comes Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Québec with three soloists, including countertenor Iestyn Davies, in a program built around Handel’s Coronation Anthems and Music for the Royal Fireworks. Early December brings us Bach's complete Christmas Oratorio with Myriam Leblanc, Lucile Richardot, Nicholas Mulroy, and Philippe Sly. And to cap off the season, the orchestra and choir will perform Vivaldi’s Gloria and Handel’s Dixit Dominus alongside touching works by Bach, Kuhnau, and Buxtehude.
