Apollo’s Fire

Apollo’s Fire

Named for the classical god of music and the sun, Apollo’s Fire was founded by its Artistic Director Jeannette Sorrell, to revive 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. Performing for audiences in London, Italy, France, Austria, New York, Boston, Toronto, Los Angeles, Dublin, and San Francisco, Apollo’s Fire has been hailed “one of the pre-eminent period-instrument ensembles.”
