Usually summer at Apple Hill means strains of chamber music drifting across campus. In 2020, with workshops and concerts online, the air was filled with a different kind of music to our ears: the sounds of construction. After a pause due to the pandemic, construction on Apple Hill’s central campus renovation project began again, and was completed in 2022. Thank you to our generous donors for your support!
Facilities Manager Richard Anderson and his crew have built an addition behind the Concert Barn to extend the kitchen, Winter Rehearsal Room (now known as the Green Room), breezeway, and basement space, and added a restroom on the main level. They have built a new kitchen porch and a brand-new deck between the Concert Barn and Green Room. The improved and expanded basement area includes upgraded bathrooms and showers, a new, accessible bathroom/shower, additional storage areas, and three new practice rooms.
Now that we have been welcoming our community back to in-person concerts and summer workshops, audiences, students, and performers have been able to enjoy our improved facilities, accessibility, kitchen, and Green Room. The Concert Barn itself is just as you remembered it—filled with memories of 50 years of music.
