This Sunday (10/6) on WCLV (9-10 a.m. EDT), WCLV’s Musical Passions program with Eric Kisch shares the studio with Jeannette Sorrell, Music Director of Apollo’s Fire, Cleveland’s baroque orchestra.  The program will be a special preview of the ensemble’s concert season with musical selections to provide a foretaste of the variety of music to be presented in concert during the coming months. 

Composers to be represented will range from Anonymous, that prolific composer of the Medieval period, to celebrated names like Bach and Handel.  On this Sunday’s program, for selections that have not yet been recorded by Apollo’s Fire, Eric will be presenting alternate performances in keeping with his weekly goal of presenting “great recordings of the finest artists from this and the last century.”  Apollo’s Fire will continue its practice of performing in various venues throughout the area, as listed below.  Learn of works, artists and ticket availability by following this link.
