Apollo's Fire — The Cleveland Baroque Orchestra
Jeannette Sorrell, artistic director

Apollo’s Fire, led by conductor-harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell, has garnered praise for its "ingenious programme[s]” and “superlative music-making" (The Daily Telegraph). The GRAMMY®-winning ensemble has sold out performances at Carnegie Hall, the BBC Proms, the Tanglewood Festival, and the Royal Theatre of Madrid, among others. Returning to The Met for the first time in three years, they present a thrilling mélange of music—both familiar and recently discovered—from Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jewish traditions, plus selections from Baroque Italy’s small, but mighty community of Jewish composers. 

"Today, more people are displaced than ever before in our history. Refugees and migrants cry for justice and mercy on the doorstep of both Europe and the U.S. I hope that perhaps the music of the exile experience will help us reconnect with our shared roots – as fragile human beings, sharing a fragile planet." –Jeannette Sorrell, Artistic Director, Apollo's Fire
