Apollo's FireApollo's Fire

Named for the classical god of music and the sun, Apollo's Fire was founded in 1992 by the award- winning young harpsichordist and conductor Jeannette Sorrell. Sorrell envisioned an ensemble dedicated to the baroque ideal that music should evoke the various Affekts or passions in the listeners.

Now a Grammy award-winning orchestra, Apollo's Fire has performed sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall, the BBC Proms, the Royal Theatre of Madrid, the Tanglewood Festival, the Metropolitan Museum of Art...and more! But what Apollo's Fire musicians love most is bringing world-class performances to your doorstep—in a continuous "tour" of Northeast Ohio neighborhoods. Apollo's Fire is dedicated to reviving the true spirit of baroque performances, not only with period instruments but with the emotional impact the music was meant to convey.

Celebrate with Apollo's Fire as they enter their thirty-first year! For more about Apollo's Fire, visit the group's website.
