Called “dashing and extraordinary” by the Strad Magazine, the Apple Hill String Quartet has earned praise around the world for its concerts presenting interpretive mastery of traditional repertoire, neglected masterpieces, and music from around the world, as well as world premieres and commissioned pieces. As resident musicians at the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music in rural Nelson, NH, the quartet serves as the artistic curators and core faculty for Apple Hill’s Summer Chamber Music Workshop attended by 300 participants of diverse ages, levels, and backgrounds. During the regular concert season, in conjunction with Apple Hill’s Playing for Peace program, the quartet performs concerts and conducts residencies locally in New Hampshire, nationally in major U.S. cities, and internationally around the globe. The quartet has collaborated with members of the Brentano String Quartet, Dorian Wind Quintet, Silk Road Ensemble, Hirsch-Pinkas Piano Duo, New York Philharmonic, Community Music Works in Providence, RI, and Dana Lyn & Kyle Sanna.
