By the age of 17, Jeannette Sorrell knew she wanted to direct a chamber orchestra. Even as a child, her determination led her to practice the piano on a hand-drawn keyboard. So she was not discouraged when she was rejected from a prestigious orchestral program and told she needed to find another career due to her gender. She dug in her heels. As a result, Sorrell was one of the youngest students accepted to conductor programs at the Aspen and Tanglewood music festivals. She is now the Artistic Director of the Cleveland Baroque Orchestra Apollo’s Fire, a chamber orchestra as unique as Sorrell. The group is composed of baroque specialists, musicians with expertise in playing period instruments. The documentary PLAYING WITH FIRE gives an insider look behind the curtain. Attend rehearsals, enjoy interviews with the orchestra’s musicians, and get a firsthand appreciation of how Sorrell prepares her masterpieces. Enter a world of classical music not often seen, while being captivated by beautiful symphonies from the baroque period. – R.R.
