Apollo’s Fire has announced a new creative crossover program for its 2017 popular “Countryside Concerts” series in rustic venues: Mediterranean Roots – Dances & Romances in the Ancient World.
The waters of the Mediterranean carried ancient traders from Spain and Italy to Greece, North Africa and the Middle East. Their songs, dances, love stories and laments traveled with them.
And, as a special treat for area music lovers, there will be a stop locally when Apollo’s Fire performs Sunday, June 11, at 2 p.m. at AVON LAKE United Church of Christ, 32801 Electric Blvd.
Tickets are available through the Apollo’s Fire box office at (216) 320-0012 and online at apollosfire.org. Prices range from $20 -$55.
Guest co-directors Amanda Powell (soprano) and Brian Kay (oud, guitar and vocals) will lead a colorful ensemble of exotic winds and percussion, fiddle, and hammered dulcimer in this program celebrating shared multicultural traditions.
