Apollo’s Singers, like Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra, were 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)

Apollo’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.

In 2021, Apollo’s Singers join the New York Philharmonic in 4 performances of Handel’s Messiah under the baton of Jeannette Sorrell, who makes her New York Philharmonic conducting debut in these concerts. Performances are December 14-18 in the stunning Neo-Gothic architecture of Riverside Church, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. [Tickets & Information]
