Les Vi­olons du Roy, a Que­bec-based cham­ber or­ches­tra of strings, de­rives its name from an ensem­ble that was founded in the 17th cen­tury by Louis XIII and flour­ished for 135 years un­der three monar­chs. The Cana­dian group, es­tab­lished in 1984, fo­cuses on Baroque and Clas­si­cal reper­toire (though not ex­clu­sively), which it ap­proaches with an aware­ness of his­tor­i­cal style though with­out play­ing pe­riod instruments. Mathieu Lussier, the group’s as­so­ciate con­duc­tor, leads the play­ers in the 10th and fi­nal ap­pear­ance of their cur­rent tour, which touches down at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) at 4 p.m. on Sun­day, March 22, spon­sored by Per­for­mance Santa Fe. The in­stru­men­tal­ists will of­fer Haydn’s Sym­phony No. 45 (the “Farewell”) and a suite from Rameau’s tragic opera Les Boréades ; pow­er­house Cana­dian pi­anist Marc-An­dré Hamelin will be fea­tured in Mozart’s Con­cert Rondo in A ma­jor and Haydn’s Pi­ano Con­certo in D ma­jor. Tick­ets ($27 to $100 with dis­counts avail­able) may be pur­chased by call­ing 505-988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.org. — James M. Keller
