As the Chicago area’s premier volunteer choral ensemble, and one of the
oldest musical organizations in the United States, Apollo Chorus has been
thrilling audiences since 1872. Its 120-plus auditioned members, under the
leadership of Music Director and Conductor Dr. Stephen Alltop, include
men and women of all ages, races, creeds, and occupations brought together
by their love of singing.
Each season, Apollo celebrates the power of live musical performance through
masterworks of the choral repertoire, from Baroque to Broadway. Recent
programs have included classical, gospel, folk, American jazz, Brazilian samba,
and even the Beatles. Critics and audiences alike delight in Apollo’s consistent
artistry and passion.
This year, we invite you to join us for A World of Music – a global tour from
classical Europe to 20th century England and America to a concert of “International
Voices” including works from Estonia, Ireland, Scotland, and Venezuela. Help us
