Watch-at-Home Tickets for National & International Viewers

Dear Friends far and wide,
 
Wherever you live, from Stockholm to San Francisco to Singapore, if you’ve enjoyed our YouTube videos then you’ll want to be a part of our new Worldwide Watch-at-Home series. As a Watch-at-Home patron, you can enjoy our ZOOM pre-concert talks as well as post-concert Virtual Lobby Zoom sessions with the musicians. Best of all, ticket prices are REDUCED for new Worldwide Subscribers and ticket-buyers during this introductory period.
 
We call this season A Pilgrimage of Hope because it begins in a place of doubts and unrest, passes through various moods, and ends in the spring with Celebration. Will the course of human events follow that same path? It remains to be seen. But music brings us together, across the mountains and across the oceans. Music helps us tap into our shared roots as fellow citizens of this planet.
 
We look forward to seeing you, wherever you live!
 
Best wishes from Cleveland,
Jeannette Sorrell

Program #1:
RESILIENCE: Music for Troubled Times
Available NOW: (Watch anytime for 30 days from date of purchase)

London, 1665: A year-long plague held the city in its grip, but haunting folk ballads and laments of Dowland and Purcell wafted from the windows of empty streets. Two centuries later, outbreaks of cholera and dysentery could not prevent Americans – black and white – from singing in joyous harmony at the end of the Civil War. In this new program from Jeannette Sorrell, we conjure up these two historic pandemics through music, diaries and poems as we celebrate the resilience of the human spirit. WE SHALL OVERCOME.

Program #2:
ALLURE: The Three Amandas
Amanda Forsythe & Amanda Powell, sopranos | Amanda Crider, mezzo-soprano
Available NOW: (Watch anytime for 30 days from date of purchase)

 
Long ago in the palace of Ferrara, three renowned ladies entertained princes with their astonishing musicianship. The “Tre Donne di Ferrara” (Three Ladies of Ferrara) were probably the first female professional musicians. Apollo’s Fire collaborates with three stunning Amandas in virtuoso trios written for the Ferrara ladies, alongside soulful songs by Barbara Strozzi and Francesca Caccini and lively duets from Monteverdi’s playful Scherzi Musicali. Eight instrumentalists join in the fun with dances from the palace and the countryside.

Program #3:
CHRISTMAS on Sugarloaf Mountain
Available NOW: (Watch anytime for 30 days from date of purchase)

Jeannette Sorrell, conductor/harpsichord
Amanda Powell, soprano vocals
Ross Hauck, tenor vocals

In this communal celebration of the American immigrant experience, fiddlers, medieval harp, hammered dulcimer, bagpipes, and singers join with children’s voices to evoke the Celtic roots of an Appalachian Christmas. From Christmas Eve in medieval Scotland to folk carols and shape-note hymns at a toe-tapping Christmas gathering in Virginia… we follow the journeys of the Irish and Scottish settlers who bravely crossed the Atlantic. The people of the mountains welcome Christmas with LOVE, SINGING, DANCING and PRAYER.

Program #4:
ELEGANCE: The Harper’s Voice
Available NOW: (Watch anytime for 30 days from date of purchase)

Anna O’Connell, baroque & Celtic harps, soprano
with Amanda Powell, soprano
 
The harp was the voice of the marginalized peoples of the British Isles – Irish, Welsh, and Scots. Ireland’s legendary blind harper, Turlough O’Carolan, was one of several great harpers of the 17th and 18th centuries. Today’s young harpist troubadour, Anna O’Connell, sings and accompanies herself on the harp in the manner of the old Celtic harpists. Six Apollo’s Fire musicians on violins, flute, cello, hammered dulcimer, and lutes join Anna in sparkling music by O’Carolan, Dowland, and Purcell, along with Scottish and Irish folk songs.

*Harpist Parker Ramsay, originally announced as guest director/soloist for this project, has withdrawn and is replaced by harpist/soprano Anna O’Connell.

Program #5:
TAPESTRY: Jewish Ghettos of Baroque Italy
Available NOW: (Watch anytime for 30 days from date of purchase)

 
In 1600, Italy was home to a fascinating melting pot of Jews from northern Europe, Spain, North Africa, and the Middle East. Though confined to crowded ghettos, the Italian Jews enlivened Italy with a vibrant mix of Sephardic and Ashkenazi musical traditions. In Venice and Mantua, Jewish and Catholic composers such as Salamone Rossi, Claudio Monteverdi, and Benedetto Marcello worked side by side and influenced each other. Our 15 musicians weave a musical tapestry, from prayer to feasting. Hebrew chants and baroque settings of the Psalms meet instrumental virtuosity – including a sparkling Sammartini concerto featuring Israeli recorder virtuoso Daphna Mor.
 
“Innovative and brilliant… a magic carpet that swept Sunday’s large audience away.”

Program #6:
VIRTUOSITY: Fireworks from J.S. Bach
Available NOW: (Watch anytime for 30 days from date of purchase)

Apollo’s Fire ends the season in an explosion of virtuoso fireworks. Bach’s famously fiery Concerto in D Minor is usually heard on keyboard, but was originally intended for violin (and is even better that way!) Acclaimed soprano Amanda Forsythe returns for AF’s first-ever performance of Bach’s sparkling “Jauchzet” cantata, featuring dazzling coloratura for soprano and trumpet. The AF strings take the spotlight in the beloved Brandenburg Concerto no. 3.
