Apollo’s Singers, like Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra, was founded in 1992 by Jeannette Sorrell. Since their debut concert that year (performing the Mozart Requiem), this professional straight-tone chorus has been hailed as “one of the finest choirs of its kind in the country.” (The Cleveland Plain Dealer)

chorusApollo’s Singers appear on over five CD recordings with the orchestra, including the Mozart Requiem, Bach’s St. John Passion, the Monteverdi Vespers, Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, and Praetorius Christmas Vespers. The chorus has frequently toured with the orchestra, performing In Toronto, Pittsburgh, Toledo, Columbus, and at the Ojai Festival in California.

“Choral clarity of this sort is almost unheard of today.” –The Plain Dealer

“Sorrell and her sensational chorus, Apollo’s Singers, make contact with music on both visceral and intellectual levels, and the results are intoxicating.” –The Plain Dealer

“Apollo’s Singers were breathtaking. Every phrase the chorus sang was molded down to the tiniest nuance. Pitch, balance, enunciation, you-name-it were well-nigh perfect.” –The Plain Dealer

“Apollo’s Singers are a model of what power and beauty can transpire when pitch is perfect and everyone shares the same concept. “ – Akron Beacon Journal
