Named for the god of music, Apollo5 has demonstrated that a choir of only five singers is no barrier to a full, dynamic sound. Over their twelve years as an ensemble, Apollo5 has performed in the most prestigious UK, European, and North American venues, gathering praise for their "lyrical expressiveness and lovely fresh tone" (Opera Today). With their repertoire spanning five centuries, two of Apollo5's recent albums have made the top 10 UK Classical recording charts, a testament to their ability to weave a cohesive narrative out of varied selections.
While their program for Duke Arts has not yet been announced, it will feature their signature and lively mixed repertoire, highlighting music from the renaissance to pop and jazz. Their program will also include new works and arrangements especially composed for Apollo5.
