From Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music Website:
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. Apple Hill performs concerts and leads chamber music workshops in areas where there is a history of conflict: the Middle East in Turkey, Jordan, Israel, Egypt, the West Bank/Palestine, and the Greek and Turkish areas of Cyprus; England, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland; and the Eurasian Caucasus. They also bring Playing for Peace to many U.S. cities, including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas, Memphis, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Read more about Playing for Peace.
