Audio described tickets to New Zealand’s iconic youth music competition, the NZCT Chamber Music Contest, are available. This compeition has fostered young musicians and composers for over 50 years.
This year’s Contest was initially turned upside down due to COVID-19 with students unable to access their school, instruments and fellow musicians to prepare. In a time where we were all creating a new normal, we decided to reshape the Contest to ensure a platform for talented young musicians all around Aotearoa. So we moved online.
Almost 200 ensembles (almost 1000 secondary school students) rose to the challenge, rehearsing their parts separately at home then working tirelessly when they returned to school to record and submit their online video entry. We are thrilled we are able to move forward with our live final and welcome these young musicians and our audience back into the concert hall to celebrate this incredible achievement.
Please join us in celebrating the incredible drive by our secondary school ensembles to create and share music. Full information is available by contacting Laurel 0800 266 2378 or visiting chambermusic.co.nz/contest
