Apollo’s Fire Returns to Lake Erie College to Perform “Come to the River”(Painesville, Ohio) – Lake Erie College is pleased to welcome back Cleveland’s Baroque Orchestra Apollo’s Fire to perform "Come to the River: An Early American Gathering” on Thursday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the Morley Music Building.
Debuted in the Billboard Top 10, "Come to the River” is considered a "vibrant American sampler…one of the most joyous releases, intoxicated by the sheer joy of being alive” by American Record Guide.
The program is divided into three parts: Appalachian Wagon Train, Love and Death, and Revival Meeting. In this arrangement, four singer-actors meet a virtuoso fiddler, an old-time guitarist, a hot-shot hammered dulcimer player and some wooden flutes. From the spiritual heights of an old American revival to the driving rhythms of New England barn dances, Jeannette Sorrell and her crossover artists bring to life the rich American tradition of shape-note singing and Southern harmony.
Tickets are available by calling the Apollo’s Fire Box Office at 216-320-0012. Lake Erie College students, faculty and staff will be admitted free. For more information, visit www.apollosfire.org.
