The Summer Concert Series features the Apple Hill String Quartet and Summer Chamber Music Workshop faculty artists. Each Tuesday night concert will begin with an introduction by Director Leonard Matczynski.
Committed to fulfilling our mission, but with safety concerns of paramount importance, Apple Hill has shifted to hosting an abbreviated, online summer program. Open to all, this combination of concerts, lectures, and discussions will embody the unique and diverse music-making of the Apple Hill community. Links will be available here and videos of live streams will be shared the following day on our YouTube channel.
The Summer Concert Series 2020 will take place every Tuesday at 7:30pm from June 16th – August 11th, streamed from the John and Jean Hoffman Community Auditorium at Apple Hill and various locations throughout the world.
Our 2020 concerts, beginning with the May 3 Monadnock Region Concert Series concert, are now available on our YouTube channel.
The concerts are free, but please consider a “ticket” donation to support our musicians!
