For over seventy years, Chamber Music New Zealand has inspired, consoled and delighted New Zealanders through live music. It has also been deeply involved in music education, notably through the nationwide secondary-schools chamber music competition established in 1965.
The Foundation contributes to the development and sustainability of these activities. Our work is entirely dependent on the generosity of our donors to whom we are enormously grateful.
Income from the Foundation’s growing endowment fund assists Chamber Music New Zealand’s artistic programmes, community outreach, education and the development of our musicians.
Examples include the Foundation providing:
- Artist fees for regional concerts
- Travel scholarships for district rounds of the NZCT Chamber Music Contest
- Professional development for CMNZ staff
- Prizes and awards
