The Wenatchee Apollo Club is a male chorus located in Wenatchee, Washington. Known  as the "Apple Capital of the World", Wenatchee lies adjacent to the Columbia River in a semi arid  climate that, with irrigation, grows a wide variety of luscious fruit and is fast becoming one the the state's premier wine producers.

Our Director

Tim Meyer
 


Tim Meyer is a long time resident of Wenatchee area. Two driving forces in his life are life on the farm and his love of singing. He has been an orchardist for 31 years, and currently owns 100 acres of apples and alfalfa, which keeps him connected both with
nature and a John Deere tractor seat.

Beyond the farm, his musical journey began standing around the piano with parents and sisters singing gospel tunes. In school he joined a barbershop quartet, performed in “Camelot” and “Guys and Dolls” and even a college rock band, much to disapproval of voice instructors… ah, the good old days. Tim graduated from Wenatchee Valley College and continued studies at Central Washington University. He sang tenor for ten years with the “Living Waters Vocal Band,” a gospel quartet which performed throughout the Pacific Northwest. He has directed various church choirs and music productions throughout the years.  His latest adventure
involves a fruit and produce store across from the Quincy Rest Stop called "Hilltop Harvest Barn."

He currently directs the Apollo Club.  This group of 60 men is a community choir which performs throughout the region. So, from the tractor to tuxedo, Tim’s life is full and happy. Tim is thankful for blessings of friends, family, children and a drop-dead gorgeous red-headed wife and his best friend, Alice.
