The Ministers of Apollo, founded in 2007, recreate
an authentically dressed eighteenth century chamber concert.
Historically informed performances present audiences
with original music and sights popular in the
American or British home ca. 1776.
Experience sonatas Thomas Jefferson and his
daughter played at leisure, songs composed by
Francis Hopkinson (one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence), dance tunes performed in New York City
during the British occupation, and much more.
The Ministers of Apollo deliver refined entertainment by
classically trained musicians, while incorporating researched
detail in culture and dress. Truly an ornament to dinner parties,
historic sites, weddings, fundraisers, historical society functions,
school programs, and any other social gathering.

Coming soon: samples of our music, cd recording, and iTunes tracks.
Our music is one of the recorded tracks on the Constitution Island museum's orientation film
at West Point, featuring a harpsichord and violin sonata by J.C. Bach.
We have been featured under our old name "Cecelia and Genesius" on the front page of the
August 2008 Bergen Record's entertainment section.
