Apple Hill Chamber Players

The flexibly configured Apple Hill Chamber Players are unique in the world of music. They represent one of America's most highly respected performing ensemble traditions, winning international praise for vital, elegant, and eloquent performances and recordings of the chamber music literature from classic 18th to 20th century masterpieces, to new and commissioned works by leading composers. Founded in 1973, the Apple Hill Chamber Players are the performing artists and faculty for the internationally celebrated Apple Hill Festival in Nelson, New Hampshire where they are joined by professional, student, and amateur participants of all ages and backgrounds from the USA and around the world.

The Apple Hill Playing for Peace Project is dedicated to using the traditions of Apple Hill concerts, residences, and scholarships to further the causes of world peace and understanding - at Apple Hill, throughout the United States, and throughout the world. Since 1998, the Apple Hill Chamber Players have annually toured the Middle East, Europe, and other parts of the world, as well as all corners of the United States, performing concerts, conducting master classes, and awarding Playing for Peace scholarships to bring musicians of conflicting cultures and diverse backgrounds to Apple Hill. The dramatic story of the Apple Hill Chamber Players' 1992 tour of Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria was documented in the namesake PBS film and video "Playing for Peace" by EMI award-winning Peter Rosin, seen by over four million viewers.

Apple Hill programs are funded in part by contributions from individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies worldwide.
