Mission

Winner of the 2015 CMAcclaim award from Chamber Music America and the Ewing Arts award from the Monadnock region, Apple Hill is a non-profit arts organization, situated on 100 acres of fields and woodlands in rural New Hampshire, that builds long-term learning relationships between professional and student musicians of all ages, levels, and cultures. The organization offers educational and mentoring programs each year to 300 participants on-site and to thousands more throughout the world while producing approximately 60 concerts each year. Central to the mission of Apple Hill, the Playing for Peace program uses music as a means to cross cultural, religious, economic, and political divides. Musicians from these populations in conflict are placed in small ensembles and coached by Apple Hill in the skills of chamber music – listening, watching, adjusting, sensitivity, and being flexible—the same skills needed to work and function effectively in the world.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

AHCCM sponsors year-round concerts by its Permanent and Founding Artists-in-Residence, the Apple Hill Chamber Players and Guest Artists, as well as benefit concerts to enrich the musical and artistic life of the community. AHCCM's Playing for Peace project promotes friendship, peace, understanding, and basic contact between and among Israeli Jews, Israeli Arabs, Jordanians, Egyptians, Syrians, Americans and participants from many other countries through concerts, master classes, and chamber music workshops. The Apple Hill Playing for Peace Project is now in its fourteenth year. Apple Hill will again be awarding scholarships to young musicians from the Middle East to attend the month-long International Session of the Summer School and Festival in New Hampshire.

Population(s) Served

The summer program is divided into five 10-day sessions, with each session attended by 60 participants ranging in age from 12 to 90. Each ensemble is coached daily for 1 1/2 hours. In the student concerts that close each session, all groups have the opportunity to perform for an appreciative and encouraging audience of fellow participants, faculty, family, and friends. Pre-formed ensembles may apply. These groups will be coached, and individuals in these groups will also be mixed into new ensembles with other members of the participant community. Each member of a pre-formed group must apply separately.

Population(s) Served

Central to the mission of Apple Hill is Playing for Peace, an innovative outreach program founded in 1988 that focuses on social change and conflict resolution through music. The principal tenet of Playing for Peace is this: musicians are assigned to play in small ensembles alongside musicians from conflicting communities. Participants learn to play music, communicate, and connect with each other in ways that may not be possible in their home communities.

Population(s) Served

The Summer Concert Series features the Apple Hill String Quartet and Summer Chamber Music Workshop guest faculty artists. Each Tuesday night concert is preceded by a buffet dinner and listenUP, a pre-concert lecture series by Director Leonard Matczynski.
