About Infusion Baroque
Winners of the Grand Prize and Audience Prize at the 2014 Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition, Montreal-based ensemble Infusion Baroque seeks to draw a new audience to early music by integrating chamber music performance and other artistic media. Infusion’s innovative programming includes Musique en couleur, featuring live painting by visual artist Sylvia Chan; and Rebels and Rivalry, based on scandalous stories from the lives of the great composers. Past projects include L’Arte di Corelli, featuring a slide slow of baroque visual art inspired by the composer’s extensive collection of paintings; and Who Killed Leclair?, an interactive murder mystery soirée based on the unsolved murder of the famous composer. Infusion Baroque has performed across Eastern Canada and United States, including appearances at the Montreal Baroque Festival and Boston Early Music Fringe Festival. Upcoming events include engagements with the San Francisco Early Music Society, Houston Early Music Festival, Indianapolis Early Music Festival, Early Music Now (Milwaukee), Renaissance & Baroque (Pittsburgh) and Early Music Guild (Seattle).
