Named for the classical god of music and healing, Apollo’s Fire is a GRAMMY®- winning ensemble based in Cleveland, Ohio. The period-instrument orchestra was founded by award-winning conductor-harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell, and is dedicated to the baroque ideal that music should evoke the various Affekts or passions in the listeners. Apollo’s Fire artists share Sorrell’s passion for drama and rhetoric. 

Apollo’s Fire has performed five European tours, with sold-out concerts at the BBC Proms in London, Madrid’s Royal Theatre, Bordeaux’s Grand The´a`tre de l’Ope´ra, the National Concert Hall of Ireland, and venues in France, Italy, Austria, 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, Aspen, and Ravinia music festivals, the Boston Early Music Festival series, the Library of Congress, the National Gallery of Art, 3 the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and major venues in Toronto, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The ensemble has performed two major U.S. tours of the Monteverdi Vespers and a 9-concert tour of the Brandenburg Concertos. At home in Cleveland, Apollo’s Fire enjoys sold-out performances at its series, which has drawn national attention for creative programming. 

With over 8 million views of its YouTube videos, Apollo’s Fire has released 27 commercial CDs and won a GRAMMY® award in 2019 for the album Songs of Orpheus with tenor Karim Sulayman. Nine of the ensemble's CD releases have become best-sellers on the classical Billboard chart, including Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Monteverdi Vespers, Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, and Sorrell’s 5 crossover programs: Come to the River – An Early American Gathering; Sacrum Mysterium – A Celtic Christmas Vespers; Sugarloaf Mountain – An Appalachian Gathering; Sephardic Journey – Wanderings of the Spanish Jews; and Christmas on Sugarloaf Mountain.
