WFU Secrest Artists Series presents Apollo’s Fire

Wake Forest University’s Secrest Artists Series will present Apollo’s Fire on Thursday, Jan. 27, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. in Wait Chapel.

The concert honors the 50th anniversary of the acquisition of Wake Forest’s Casa Artom, the University’s study abroad home in Venice, Italy, and will feature early-music chamber orchestra conducted by Wake Forest alumna Jeannette Sorrell. The program showcases concertos for multiple instruments by Bach and Vivaldi.

Casa Artom is dedicated to Dr. Camillo Artom, who had fled fascist Italy and become a doctor and biochemical researcher at Wake Forest’s medical school. His wife Bianca Artom taught Italian at Wake Forest and served as the first director of the Venice program.

Tickets for the community are $5-$18. Seating is unassigned. More information can be found at or by calling the Secrest Artists Series box office at (336) 758-5757.

Wake Forest University and medical school faculty, staff and retirees receive free admission for themselves and one guest to each Secrest Artists Series performance. Admission is free for WFU students with ID.

At this time, Wake Forest University requires face masks to be worn at all in-person events. Guests may be asked to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test.
