Since its founding in 2007, the Apple Hill String Quartet has earned praise around the world for its concerts presenting interpretive mastery of traditional repertoire and for new and commissioned works by outstanding composers as well. Apple Hillís innovative outreach program Playing for Peace focuses on social change and conflict resolution through music in areas where there is conflict, particularly the Middle East.
Apple Hillís program included the premiere of Presences, a new work by John Harbison for cello, string quartet and string bass which was commissioned in memory of David Anderson, a young student cellist who studied at Apple Hill.
Harbison was interviewed in a pre-concert event in the chapel before the concert.
The concert also included Franz Joseph Haydnís String Quartet in C Major, Op. 54, No. 2 and Ahmed Adnan Saigonís String Quartet #1.
