Apollo’s Singers, the choral ensemble of Apollo’s Fire, was founded in 1992 by Jeannette Sorrell. Since their debut concert that year (performing Mozart’s 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 ten CD recordings with the orchestra, including Handel’s Messiah and Israel in Egypt, Bach’s St. John Passion, Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo and Vespers, and the crossover albums O Jerusalem! and Sacrum Mysterium. The chorus has frequently toured with the orchestra, performing in Chicago, New York, the UK, Germany, and at the Ojai Festival in California.

In 2021, Apollo’s Singers made their New York Philharmonic debut singing Handel’s Messiah under Jeannette Sorrell’s baton. The 2023-2024 season will see their return to the Philharmonic’s stage with Jeannette, this time performing Handel’s triumphant Israel in Egypt.
