Community Access Initiative

Share the Music. Share the Love.

Apollo’s Fire believes that all people, regardless of location and economic status, deserve to share in the inspirational and transformative powers of classical music. In 2017, Apollo’s Fire and Jeannette Sorrell launched the bold new Community Access Initiative, with the generous support of the Cleveland Foundation, the George Gund Foundation and PEG’S Foundation. The goal is to break down economic barriers to attendance, making world-class baroque concerts accessible to diverse audiences. In its first two years, the program has helped Apollo’s Fire bring in 5000 new attenders!

The Community Access Initiative includes:

  • $12 Presto Seats to all subscription concerts*
  • Free Student Rush Tickets, day of show**
  • Family Concerts are free! (interactive 45-min. programs for ages 6-96
    These are presented on weekends at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Akron Art Museum.
  • Family Nights – Parents and their children from selected public schools will be invited to attend an Apollo’s Fire subscription concert for free!
    Check back for this season’s Family Night dates.
  • Workshops & Performances in public schools, presented in partnership with the Center for Arts-Inspired Learning
