Swallow concerts
June 6

"Where the swallow builds its nest, prosperity will rule"

After times of hardship, the winter period when everything comes to a hold, the arrival of the swallow indicates that there is again freedom to create space and to shape new ideas. That is why we chose this energetic bird as the symbol for our concerts, to enjoy the freedom of live music with our musicians and our audience.

Thanks to the many friends of the Apollo Ensemble who supported us when everything suddenly stopped, we were able to organize these concerts. We think it is great that we can convert this support into sounds and we invite everyone to visit the Swallow concerts.

Door het wegvallen van de passie-concerten en de andere concerten is er een grote muzikale leegte ontstaan.
Deze kunnen we voor u gedeeltelijk invullen met onze Dvd’s en Cd’s!
De opbrengst uit de verkoop gaat in het door de stichting Apollo opgerichte “noodfonds”
Hiermee gaan we de financiële leegte die door de crisis bij de musici is ontstaan gedeeltelijk aanvullen zodat we zodra het kan weer vol energie mooie concerten kunnen geven!
