About the Event

The chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy performs “with such unity of purpose that one might think they were a single instrument” (The Washington Post). The group, which has a core membership ­of 15,­ was ­brought ­together ­in ­1984 ­by ­founding­ conductor Bernard Labadie and specializes in the vast repertoire of music for chamber orchestra. The­ orchestra ­­regularly ­delves into ­the ­repertoire ­of ­the ­17th, 18th, 19th, ­and 20th centuries. 

Inon Barnatan is celebrated for his poetic sensibility, musical intelligence, and consummate artistry. He began his tenure as music director of La Jolla Music Society­ Summerfest ­in ­2019. Barnatan­ is­ a­ regular piano soloist ­with ­many ­of ­the ­world’s foremost orchestras and conductors.
