On Wednesday night, UCONN's Jorgensen graced its audience with Les Violons du Roy, a French-Canadian chamber orchestra who blended both contemporary and baroque music whilst featuring countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo. Before the show, there was a pre-concert lecture with Jonathan Cohen, the new music director and conductor of Les Violons du Roy. He discussed how this is the orchestra's first season on tour with himself as conductor, as the previous conductor and founder stepped down a few years earlier. He later went on to discuss how the concert compared and contrasted the worlds of baroque composer George Frideric Handel and contemporary composer Philip Glass.  PHOTO:  (Nicholas Hampton/The Daily Campus)
