Coming to the Redfern: Apple Hill String Quartet

From Jackie Hooper, Redfern Arts Center:

Apple Hill String Quartet will perform classical works by Mozart and Vaughan Williams and new music by Boston composer Christine Southworth on Wednesday, April 3, at 7:30 p.m. at the Redfern Arts Center. This New Hampshire string quartet will premiere Southworth’s The Music Room, commissioned for Apple Hill by the Redfern Arts Center, and will also play her work Honey Flyers, based on the musicality inherent in bee activity. Tickets are $20 for the general public; $15 for senior citizens, children, KSC alumni, faculty and staff; and $5 for KSC students. For tickets, call the Redfern Box Office at 603-358-2168 or order online at

There are two outreach activities planned for the day of the performance, Wednesday, April 3, which are free and open to the public. Apple Hill String Quartet will present a master class with an interactive component for string and wind players at 2 p.m. in the Alumni Recital Hall. The quartet will perform at the beginning of the class and will then talk about Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music based in Nelson. Apple Hill Director Lenny Matczynski and composer Christine Southworth will offer a pre-show talk “Listen Up” at 6:45 p.m. in the Harry Davis Room off the Redfern lobby. The “Listen Up” talk will be a general introduction to the evening’s program.
