Les Violons du Roy with a core membership of 15 players specializes in the vast repertoire of music for chamber orchestra and performs in the stylistic manner most appropriate to each era. Although the ensemble plays on modern instruments, its approach to the works of the baroque and classical periods has been strongly influenced by research into 17th- and 18th-century performance practice - in this repertoire Les Violons du Roy uses copies of period bows. The orchestra also regularly delves into the repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries. While at the Weis Center, they will perform works by G.F. Handel and Philip Glass.
