Apollo's Fire announces 21st season
Apollo’s Fire, the Cleveland Baroque Orchestra, announces its 21st season under Jeannette Sorrell, music director. The season includes seven Cleveland productions as well as tour engagements throughout North America.
The season begins in October, with Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos 1, 2 and 5. In December, the group will present two holiday programs, as well as Handel’s Messiah.

The 2012–13 season ends with Mozart & Papa Haydn, April 25–28, featuring Haydn’s Tragic Symphony and Mozart’s early operas, with arias performed by soprano Amanda Forsythe.
