Apollo's Fire
O Jerusalem!

Do 13. 4. 2023
19.30 Uhr
Aula of Neue Universität Heidelberg

Apollo's Fire is a very special guest at the festival: the Cleveland, USA-based ensemble rarely comes to Europe. In their luggage they have a total of eight-part program with compositions that tell of life in a torn society and the desire to come home. In addition, they combine pure music of various origins with spoken text in a moving way. Musical director Jeannette Sorrell is influenced by her own family experiences of life in exile, which gives this concert a very personal, intimate atmosphere.

The concert is part of the programme focus "Trans- and Intercultural Programme".
