********************************************
The Apollo Orchestra is happy to announce our annual Winter concert at the beautiful Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church.  This marvelously varied program will feature Chevy Chase Presbyterian’s own Julie Vidrick-Evans as organ soloist in the rarely heard Kammermusik no. 7  by Paul Hindemith.  Apollo is once again thrilled to partner with rising opera stars from the Kennedy Center’s Domingo/Cafritz Young Artist Program in selections and scenes from 3 great (and again, rarely presented) American operas: Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress; Floyd’s Sussanah; and Barber’s Vanessa. 
The concert will conclude with one of the greatest landmarks in music history–Ludwig von Beethoven’s incomparable Symphony no. 3, “Eroica”

Welcome to Apollo

The Apollo Orchestra provides a platform for the Washington D.C. area’s finest young professional musicians. Many recently graduated from major music schools and conservatories from the metropolitan area, the nation, and from around the world. They join forces with exciting accomplished opera singers and vibrant instrumental soloists, many in the early stages of their international professional careers. The Apollo Orchestra offers dynamic interpretations of the major orchestral, opera, and concerto repertoire, as well as underperformed gems of all eras.
The Apollo Orchestra’s vision to bring a unique, educational, up-close live musical experience for our audiences and communities, through the magic of our symphony orchestra, at easy to access, informal venues is realized through our concerts and meet- the-artists receptions, which are FREE, and open to the public. The Apollo Orchestra is generously funded entirely by The Downing Family Foundation, which allows us to maintain our free admission policy in hopes of drawing the widest possible audience.
