ABOUT

Since 1965 we have witnessed thousands of young Kiwi secondary school students take to the stage from across the country as part of the annual NZCT Chamber Music Contest.

This is a significant part of our year as it unites students, parents, teachers, mentors and volunteers nationwide, in what has become the largest and longest running chamber music event of its kind.

The Contest acts as a springboard for our musicians of tomorrow. We see alumni appear as members of orchestras and chamber ensembles, here and overseas, and embark on successful solo careers. This is a prestigious national event which celebrates excellence.

The Contest is also about pursuing a discipline which has positive impacts on all facets of life for young New Zealanders.

Most of all, is it about building and bringing communities together in the joy of making music.
