Grammy-winning Apollo’s Fire — led by founder and artistic director Jeannette Sorrell — presents a colorful, uplifting, and timely program for our time: a loving exploration of the three peoples whose music and faith brought such vibrancy to the Middle East and the Mediterranean. The sounds of oud, theorbo, medieval harp, vielle, qanun, strings, wooden flutes, and exotic percussion join with human voices in a celebration of shared humanity. In this “tour” of the four quarters of Old Jerusalem (Jewish, Christian, Arab, and Armenian/Byzantine), surprising cross-influences emerge. The rhythms of daily life — love, singing, dancing, and prayer — culminate in a joyous celebration of brotherhood and sisterhood. Listen to Apollo’s Fire O Jerusalem!: Crossroads of Three Faiths on Friday, April 2, 2021 at 8pm CST.
