Chamber Music New Zealand is this country’s largest presenter of top quality chamber music concerts throughout New Zealand. Our activities are divided into three strands: the Concert Season, which showcases top international and New Zealand artists; our Regional Concerts, with a focus on New Zealand performers; and the New Zealand Community Trust Chamber Music Contest, which fosters the musical stars of the future.
Binding these strands together is a strong commitment to New Zealand music and musicians which has led to many specially commissioned works from New Zealand composers and the promotion of New Zealand performers.
CMNZ is a not for profit organisation and receives major funding from Creative New Zealand.
