Advertise With Apollo’s Fire

Apollo’s Fire, the Cleveland Baroque Orchestra (AF), will delight northeast Ohio audiences during its 24rd Anniversary Season with EIGHT productions (26 concerts). Performing in Cuyahoga, Lake, and Summit counties, AF’s 2015-16 schedule includes subscription series on the east side of Cleveland, the west side of Cleveland, and Akron, in addition to maintaining a national touring schedule.

Following the ensemble’s sold-out debut at the prestigious Tanglewood Festival in July, “Apollo’s Fire under the direction of Sorrell has put Cleveland firmly on the period-performance map” (The New Yorker). With sold-out BBC Proms (London) and Aldeburgh Festival debuts both slated for this August, “AF’s global profile is clearly higher than ever, and rising” (The Plain Dealer).

2015-16 northeast Ohio performances will be held in the following cities: Akron, Bath, Berea, Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, Fairlawn, Rocky River, Shaker Heights, and Willoughby Hills. Highlights of the season include reprisals of past season’s sell-out programs: Sacrum Mysterium: A Celtic Christmas, Praetorius Christmas Vespers and Sephardic Journey. Additional programs will include the Splendor of Venice, the medieval drama Beowulf, Passions of Handel & Vivaldi starring renowned soprano Amanda Forsythe, Bach’s St. John Passion, and A Harlequin Romance. Please refer to for a complete schedule.

Placing an ad in the Apollo’s Fire program book allows you to connect with a large and varied audience, and at the same time, provides support to a highly-respected and critically-acclaimed non-profit arts organization. Last season AF sold over 11,000 tickets to its local subscription series concerts.
