Airs Friday, March 30, 2018, at 12 noon. During October 2010, Jeannette Sorrell and the members of Apollo’s Fire, Cleveland’s Baroque Orchestra, spent 19 happy and inspired days celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Monteverdi Vespers.  The ensemble’s 11-concert, 5-state tour garnered high praise from music critics.
“Sorrell and her group have terrific energy. The flawless blend and beautiful tone were remarkable.”  –St. Louis Post-Dispatch 
“Apollo's Fire's fervent and dramatic performance of Monteverdi's 400-year old masterpiece awoke our senses as a great Italian meal might do, laden with pleasure and contrast, sensuality and surprise.” – Clevelandclassical.com 
“Spellbinding... There were moments when Sorrell and her musicians seemed almost to disappear into the music, leaving Monteverdi to console, stir and elevate.” – Cleveland Plain Dealer.
