Infusion Baroque performs live on Classical 101 and on Classical 101's Facebook at 11 a.m. Friday.

It’s one thing to give elegant, award-winning performances of music composed by Baroque-era composers who were, as my Kentucky grandmother used to say, no better than they oughta be. It’s quite another thing to serve up the dirt about the composers, too.

Friday morning at 11, get the scuttlebutt on Sebastian Bach and hear all the jabber about Jean-Marie Leclair live on Classical 101 and on Classical 101’s Facebook page (we'll have a Facebook Live video so you can watch as you listen along). Montreal-based Infusion Baroque will be in our studios the day of the ensemble's debut album release to perform a preview of “Rebels and Rivalries,” a program of sublime music and all the news about some Baroque composers that's not fit to print.

An ensemble of recorders, violins and harpsichord, Infusion Baroque won the Grand Prize and the Audience Prize in the 2014 Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition.

Since then, the group has incorporated visual art, storytelling and even interactive murder mysteries into its concerts. Here is Infusion Baroque competing at the 2014 competition:

Tune in Friday morning to hear an interview with the musicians about their debut album and a preview of “Rebels and Rivalries,” prior to their Friday evening performance, as part of the Early Music in Columbus series.

Jennifer Hambrick unites her extensive backgrounds in the arts and media and her deep roots in Columbus to bring inspiring music to central Ohio as Classical 101’s midday host. Jennifer performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Civic Orchestra of Chicago before earning a Ph.D. in musicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
