Apollo's Fire Returns to Lake Erie College with Fire and Folly: The Passions of the Baroque
[October, 2010] - Apollo’s Fire, the internationally-renowned Cleveland Baroque Orchestra, will perform “Fire and Folly: The Passions of the Baroque" at Lake Erie College on Wednesday, November 17th, at 7:30 p.m. in the Morley Music Building.
The program is based on the passion involved in baroque music: love, agitation, wildness and abandonment. Apollo’s Fire and Jeannette Sorrell shake the dust off baroque music, bringing alive the emotional communication that made Vivaldi and his colleagues so popular. The virtuoso string players of Apollo’s Fire take turns stepping into the limelight for the evening of mad virtuosity.
“We are thrilled to welcome Apollo’s Fire for another exhilarating and entertaining musical experience,” said Michael T. Victor, President. “We are grateful to the sponsoring organizations that have chosen to support this amazing event. Their unwavering dedication to the arts and art education is what helps foster cultural enrichment to all audiences,” he added.
General seating tickets are $15.00 and can be charged by phone by calling John Linsenmeier at 440-375-7235. Tickets will be held in Will Call for pickup. Tickets will also be sold in the Lake Erie College Holden Center lobby on November 15th from 4-6pm.
Students (withLEC ID), faculty and staff are invited to attend the concert at no cost, though must RSVP due to the limited number of seats available.
Apollo’s Fire was founded in 1992 by Jeannette Sorrell, a young award-winning harpsichordist and conductor who studied with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam. The ensemble was launched with the assistance of Roger Wright, then Artistic Administrator of the Cleveland Orchestra and presently head of classical programming at the BBC.
