Advertise with Apollo’s Fire

Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra (AF), is proud to launch its exciting, dynamic 2021-2022 Season! After the global success of our 2020-2021 hybrid season, the subscription series will again be offered in two ways – Watch in Person or Watch at Home.

The season includes seven productions totaling 29 concerts. Each will be performed in venues on the east side of Cleveland, west side of Cleveland, and in the Akron area, to ensure maximum audience exposure. 2021-2022 performances will be held in the following cities: Akron, Bath, Bay Village, Beachwood, Chagrin Falls, Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, Rocky River, Shaker Heights, and Willoughby Hills. All concerts will be available online not only locally but also around the world following each set of live performances. Our global in-person and online community hugely supported our programming in the 2020-21 season, with Apollo’s Fire receiving a 30% increase in subscriptions last year.

Our audience is highly educated with a passion for supporting local cultural and social institutions. Each program is advertised on local radio stations including WCLV, WCPN, and WKSU. We design, print, and distribute approximately 20,000 postcards per production to ensure a consistent audience. Last your, our subscription series had an estimated combined audience of over 15,000 patrons, and we continue to add patrons from around the USA and even farther afield who are eager to watch our concerts from the comfort of their homes.

Placing an ad in the Apollo’s Fire program book allows you to connect with a large and varied audience; at the same time, you provide support to a highly-respected and critically-acclaimed non-profit arts organization.
