  • Apple Hill Concert Barn and campus
    The Louise Shonk Kelley Concert Barn has been home to hundreds of Apple Hill concerts over the past 50 years. In 2020, we've shifted our concerts online.
  • Apple Hill's resident musicians, based on our campus in New Hampshire, rehearse, perform, and teach chamber music year-round.

Apple Hill exists to perform, teach, and broaden the appreciation of chamber music—cultivating connection and understanding among people of diverse backgrounds, cultures, playing levels, and ages through music performance and education centered around the values of acceptance, inclusivity, creative expression, and encouragement.
