Apollo’s Fire partners with the Akron Art Museum to present casual, lively programs of baroque and folk music in the Museum’s McDowell Grand Lobby and Lehner Auditorium. Free for all – come one, come all. From memories of Christmas Eve in Old Ireland, to a down-home Appalachian Christmas – haunting Irish carols meet toe-tapping spirituals. Soprano Amanda Powell reminisces about childhood Christmases in rural West Virginia, along with AF folk players on flute, fiddle, lute, banjo, cello, and hammered dulcimer. Rock the atrium.

Food & drink available at the museum café as you enjoy this 50-minute show. Children age eight and up are welcome with a parent or guardian.
