To Members of the Media,
Welcome to our website! Under the direction of Stephen Alltop, the Apollo Chorus of Chicago gets plenty of media attention for its powerful performances. Apollo has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, Time Out Chicago Magazine, and on WTTW, WGN-TV, WLS-TV, and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
As Apollo’s publicity director I will respond quickly to questions and requests. To contact me, send e-mail to email@example.com.
