L'Académie du Roi Soleil
L'Académie du Roi Soleil was founded in 2013 by Nicolas Haigh and Margaret Carpenter Haigh. What began as a group of colleagues exploring the rich sonorities of Couperin's Leçons de Ténèbres in the haunting space of York Minster's thirteenth-century fan-vaulted Chapter House has led to performances in the world-famous environments of Clare College, Cambridge and New College, Oxford, alongside appearances in churches, concert halls, and modern performance spaces across the United States. Since its inception, the ensemble has cultivated programs highlighting repertoire composed during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun-King. After a transatlantic partnership lasting several years, the ensemble is now based in Charlotte, North Carolina, where its mission is to shed fresh light on old music for modern ears.
