Now a GRAMMY®-winning orchestra, Apollo’s Fire has performed sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall, the BBC Proms, the Royal Theatre of Madrid, the Tanglewood Festival, the Metropolitan Museum of Art … and more! But what Apollo’s Fire musicians love most is bringing world-class performances to your doorstep.
Founding Artistic Director Jeannette Sorrell is praised for her “inspired leadership” (THE INDEPENDENT, London) and “revelatory performances” (OPERA NEWS). Apollo’s Fire is dedicated to reviving the true spirit of baroque performances – not only with period instruments, but with the emotional impact the music was meant to convey.
Come and see why Apollo’s Fire has one of the three largest baroque audiences in the country!

Brilliant fiddling … astonishingly lovely harmony …
It was riveting—and rare—to hear this mostly forgotten music.
