Mother’s Day Edition – Laughter & Smiles
To bring a smile to all mothers, this weekend we present the lighter side of Apollo’s Fire. Playlist 1 includes a Funeral Cantata for a Beloved Pet Canary, a “Tango Concerto” with plenty of playfulness, and a NEW video of the night when a cello bow exploded during our performance of Vivaldi’s La Folia (“Madness”).
After a glass of wine or a visit to our “Virtual Lobby” Facebook Group, enjoy Playlist 2 – a short collection of fun Appalachian ballads.
Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Apollo’s Fire!
