Apollo’s Fire - Sugarloaf Mountain: An Appalachian Christmas
Long ago, the ancient carols and lively fiddle tunes of Celtic Europe came across the water and took root in the hills of Virginia. They mingled with shape-note hymns and African spirituals to create the soulful Christmas music of Appalachia. The people of the mountains raised their voices to welcome the Christ child in love, singing, dancing, and prayer. In this new holiday program, Apollo’s Fire explores the Celtic roots of Appalachian music. The concert — featuring eleven instrumentalists, sixteen chorus members, and two vocal soloists — follows the joys and sorrows of the Celtic immigrants who crossed the Atlantic to build new lives. Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance.
