Apollo's Fire


An Irish-Appalachian Christmas

Directed by Jeannette Sorrell
An Apollo's Fire Production

Run time: Approx. 90 min, including 20 min intermission

Apollo’s Fire, Cleveland’s Grammy Award-winning Baroque orchestra, presents their rousing holiday concert, WASSAIL! - An Irish-Appalachian Christmas. On Christmas night in Old Ireland, families and friends gathered for singing, storytelling, and plenty of wassail. From a caroling party through the streets of Dublin to a holiday barn dance in Virginia, this heartwarming program follows the hopes and fears of the Irish who bravely crossed the Atlantic. Irish singer Fiona Gillespie joins with fiddlers, medieval harp, hammered dulcimer, and bagpipes in this communal celebration of the American immigrant experience. The people of the mountains welcome Christmas with love, singing, dancing and prayer.
