The Apollo Club is co-sponsoring and performing at Beer Choir Oktoberfest, a one-of-a-kind singing and drinking celebration to benefit choirs across the Twin Cities! Join us for this free special event on Saturday, September 29th from 4-7pm at Spring Cafe at the Como Lake Pavilion in St. Paul.
What is Beer Choir? Encouraged by an outgoing song leader, and supported by a kindly pianist, attendees become the choir that sings while drinking beer. Get a pint and get ready to join in on traditional drinking songs from Europe and America. You don't have to sing well to enjoy Beer Choir -- all you need to do is show up. See you there!

-- the Daytona Beach News Journal
These critiques fittingly describe Dr. Aaron Humble, the newly appointed Chef du Musique of the Apollo Club. Believing that "a consummate musician can tackle multiple genres", Dr. Humble has performed in opera, recital, and concert and chamber music, with such notable consortia as the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Boston Pops, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Center in New York, the Library of Congress, Wolf Trap, and the Chautauqua Institute.
Dr. Humble brings to us a remarkable background in choral music and conducting, with emphasis on male choral music. His ten years with Cantus, acclaimed as the premier men's vocal ensemble in the United States, will be a major asset for us. - Ray Peterson, President, The Apollo Club.
A graduate of Millikin University, Aaron holds the Doctor of Music degree in Vocal Performance and Literature from the Indiana University-Jacobs School of Music, and is a member of the faculty at Minnesota State Mankato where he teaches applied voice, diction, and conducts the University Chorale. As Dr. Humble now directs his focus towards conducting and teaching, he will continue to perform as a recital and concert singer.
