  • Founded in 1971 and located on 100 beautiful acres in rural New Hampshire, Apple Hill is recognized worldwide as a center for the teaching and performance of chamber music at the highest level.
  • 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 create chamber music at the highest standard, broaden the appreciation of chamber music through the development of educational programs, and cultivate connection and understanding among people of diverse backgrounds, cultures, playing levels, and ages through our Playing for Peace program. Our activities center around the values of acceptance, creative expression, and equal support.
