Nicolas Ellis, artistic director and founder of the Orchestre de l’Agora has been named Principal Guest Conductor of Les Violons du Roy as of the 2023–2024 season! Les Violons du Roy and Nicolas Ellis began their collaboration back in 2018, when he was invited as guest conductor of the orchestra to replace Bernard Labadie.

Since then, a real artistic and musical encounter has taken place between Nicolas Ellis and the musicians of Les Violons du Roy:

“Nicolas Ellis is one of Canada’s most talented young conductors, displaying great creativity and natural charisma. Les Violons du Roy wish to build a strong relationship and close artistic affinity with him.”
