Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra Brings Vivaldi’s Four Seasons: Rediscovered to Walton Arts Center
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, February 20, 2020 – Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra, hailed as “one of the pre-eminent period-instrument ensembles” by The Independent in London, will take the Walton Arts Center stage at 8 pm on Saturday, Feb. 29 as part of the 10x10 Arts Series to perform Vivaldi’s Four Seasons: Rediscovered.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.
Apollo’s Fire was founded in 1992 by the award-winning young harpsichordist and conductor Jeannette Sorrell. Sorrell envisioned an ensemble dedicated to the baroque ideal that music should evoke the various passions or Affekts in the listeners.
“Apollo’s Fire is a collection of artists who believe passionately that our job is to communicate – to take the listeners with us on an emotional journey. If, at the end of two hours, the audience is moved to tears, joy, laughter or prayer, then we have done a good night’s work,” Sorrell said.
Walton Arts Center’s 10x10 Arts Series brings a variety of groundbreaking artists and awe-inspiring performances to Northwest Arkansas at a price that allows more people to experience live theater performances.
Patrons attending a 10x10 Arts Series performance are invited to a post-show Creative Conversation with company members from Apollo’s Fire led by a member of Walton Arts Center’s programming staff. Patrons can also share their thoughts about the show with the popular Post-It® Note responses in the Walker Atrium.
