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.
