“Led by a brilliant harpsichordist, Jeannette Sorrell, the ensemble exudes stylish energy… a blend of scholarship and visceral intensity.”– Gramophone Magazine

Apollo’s Fire celebrates its 22nd season with 7 subscription programs evoking the passions of the soul – from the daring virtuoso concertos of Bach & Vivaldi, to haunting Sephardic laments, to sparkling Handel, and joyous Celtic fiddle tunes. Music Director Jeannette Sorrell leads a series of intimate and sculpted programs, featuring AF’s “trademark qualities: expressive subtlety, exuberance and passion” (Classical Music Magazine, London).

Join us in Cleveland Heights, Rocky River, Akron/Fairlawn, Shaker Heights, Chagrin Falls, Olmsted Falls, Bath, Willoughby, or Cleveland’s beautiful Trinity Cathedral. A season of Passion. PERIOD.

What the Critics Say

“One of the brightest lights of period-instrument playing in the United States… arguably the most distinctive in sound and memorable in style.”
– CLASSICAL MUSIC MAGAZINE, LONDON

“These musicians rejuvenated the baroque for us… Jeannette Sorrell conducted from the harpsichord with great precision, sensitivity and femininity.”
– EL PAIS (NATIONAL NEWSPAPER OF SPAIN), MADRID
