Baroque Orchestra Apollo’s Fire Joins the Opus 3 Roster
Opus 3 Artists is pleased to welcome Apollo’s Fire to the roster for North American representation. The busiest touring baroque orchestra in the U.S., Apollo’s Fire will offer a diverse assortment of programs in the 20-21 season.
Apollo’s Fire was founded by its dynamic conductor Jeannette Sorrell to revive the baroque ideal that music should move the emotional moods of the listeners through drama and rhetoric. The GRAMMY-winning ensemble and conductor have played sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall, the BBC Proms, the Tanglewood and Ravinia Festivals, London’s Wigmore Hall, Madrid’s Royal Theatre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, Boston Early Music Festival, and many others. Eight of their 26 recordings have hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Classical Chart.
“Under Sorrell’s spirited direction, Apollo’s Fire conveys devil-may-care virtuosity.”
