Who We Are

Founded in 2018 by Elias Miller and Michael Tabak and conducted by Elias Miller, the Apollo Ensemble of Boston is a new, 40-member chamber orchestra made up of some of the area’s best musicians. In its first two seasons, the ensemble has already explored a diverse body of repertoire in a series of well-attended and well-received concerts throughout the Greater Boston Area. Its musicians have tackled everything from the small ensemble works of Stravinsky and Schoenberg to the symphonies of Beethoven and Brahms (concerts for which the ensemble expanded into a full symphony orchestra). An all-volunteer group, the Apollo Ensemble gives students, high-level amateur professionals, and professional musicians alike excellent performance opportunities and serves to bring outstanding music to Boston audiences in accessible, community concerts. This year, the Apollo Ensemble looks forward to many more performances featuring music written for both chamber and symphony orchestra in venues in Jamaica Plain, Brookline, Cambridge, and Belmont.
