Biography

Apollo’s Fire is an orchestra specializing in early music (Renaissance, Baroque and early Classical) based in Cleveland, Ohio (US).

Apollo’s Fire was founded in 1992 by Jeannette Sorrell, with the assistance of Roger Wright, then Artistic Administrator of the Cleveland Orchestra (now with the BBC). The orchestra received a startup grant from the Cleveland Foundation in 1992, and made its debut to critical acclaim in June of that year.

Apollo’s Fire is frequently broadcast on National Public Radio and can also be heard on Britain’s BBC, Canada’s CBC, European Community Radio, and in Northeast Ohio on WCLV and WKSU. Apollo’s Fire has been featured on several national holiday broadcasts on NPR as well as NPR’s World of Opera and SymphonyCast.

Together with Jeannette Sorrell, Apollo’s Fire received the 1995 Noah Greenberg Award from the American Musicological Society, given for an outstanding project involving the collaboration of scholars and performers, and was awarded the 1998 Northern Ohio Live Achievement Award for Classical Music.
