This chamber orchestra borrows its name from the renowned string orchestra of the court of the French Kings. Widely acclaimed for the exceptional energy, brilliance, and vitality of its performances in the world's major venues, the Orchestra makes its Series debut with founding Artistic & Music Director Bernard Labadie and recorder virtuoso Maurice Steger in an ebullient program of works by Handel, Telemann, Sammartini and Geminiani.
Each subscription concert is preceded by a lecture, free to those holding tickets for that concert, by an expert in the music to be performed that evening. Lectures are at 4:30 PM in the Clipper Room upstairs from the Shriver Hall lobby and provide informative and entertaining insights into the works and their composers.
