Apollo's Fire Bio
Apollo’s Fire was founded in Cleveland, Ohio by the award-winning harpsichordist and conductor Jeannette Sorrell. Sorrell envisioned an ensemble dedicated to the baroque ideal that music should evoke the various Affekts or passions in the listeners. Apollo’s Fire is a collection of creative artists who share Sorrell’s passion for drama and rhetoric.

Apollo’s Fire has performed four European tours, including sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall, the BBC Proms in London, the Aldeburgh Festival (UK), Madrid’s Royal Theatre (Teatro Real), London’s Wigmore Hall, Bordeaux’s Grand Théâtre de l’Opéra, and venues in France, Austria, Italy and Portugal.

Chosen by the Daily Telegraph as one of London’s “Best 5 Classical Concerts of 2014,” Apollo’s Fire was praised for “superlative music-making… combining European stylishness with American entrepreneurialism.”

North American tour engagements include Carnegie Hall, the Tanglewood and Aspen Music Festivals, the Boston Early Music Festival series, the Library of Congress, the National Gallery of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and major venues in Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Houston. The ensemble has performed two major U.S. tours of the Monteverdi Vespers (2010 and 2014) and a nine- concert tour of the Brandenburg Concertos in 2013. At home in Cleveland, Apollo’s Fire enjoys sold-out performances at its subscription series, which has drawn national attention for creative programming.

Apollo’s Fire has released 26 commercial recordings, of which seven have become best-sellers on the classical Billboard chart: the Monteverdi Vespers, Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos & Harpsichord Concertos, The Power of Love (Handel arias and dance music with soprano Amanda Forsythe), and Jeannette Sorrell’s four creative crossover programs: Come to the River – An Early American Gathering; Sacrum Mysterium – A Celtic Christmas Vespers; Sugarloaf Mountain – An Appalachian Gathering; and Sephardic Journey – Wanderings of the Spanish Jews.
