Host Julia Figueras welcomes Publick Musick to WXXI's studios on Friday, December 8, 2017 at 1 p.m. on Classical 91.5 for a preview of Rejoice: Italian baroque music for Advent and Christmas.

Founded in 1995, and under the artistic leadership of violinist Boel Gidholm and cellist Christopher Haritatos since 2011, Publick Musick is a Rochester-based period-instrument ensemble that enriches the cultural landscape of Western New York by producing and presenting vibrant, historically informed performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries and beyond.

Backstage Pass is a live, hour-long radio series that is committed to highlighting performing artists – giving Classical 91.5/90.3/FM-HD 91.5-1 listeners the opportunity to hear local and visiting musicians performing live. The series is made possible in part by a grant from the Gouvernet Arts Fund at Rochester Area Community Foundation.

This Backstage Pass program will repeat Sunday, December 10 at 1 p.m.on Classical 91.5.
