Apollo After Hours


Apollo Chorus' Annual Benefit

Not even a pandemic can stop a chorus on a mission.

Apollo After Hours will be held (virtually) on:

Friday 17 July 2020 at 7:00 PM Chicago time

The benefit will be FREE to attend and will include many of the features that make After Hours special, such as:

  • fun musical performances, and
  • unique opportunities to support the city's oldest (and we think the most gifted) musical organization.

Registration is free and easy!

Just click the “Register Today” button to sign up and create your login.
