Podcast Episode 37: How the Apollo Club is helping heal the political divide through music
My guests this week are Paul Bergman and Gabe Stefanides, local singers in the Apollo Club who have radically different political views but who are devoted to their friendship and performing great music. We talked about their political differences, their friendship and the power of music to bring people together.
The message that both Stefanides and Bergman shared with me was that hatred is leading us astray and we need as individuals to turn toward love for one another. “We’re charged…to care for one another, to look out for one another,” said Bergman, who was once a teacher at St. Paul’s school in Wenatchee.
“The point of getting together at the Apollo Club is to make music,” Stefanides told me. “I don’t care that you voted this way,” he added. “What I care about is how do we move forward, not how do we move backward.”
