NZCT Chamber Music Contest

NZCT Chamber Music Contest

The New Zealand Community Trust Chamber Music Contest is the longest running youth music competition in New Zealand.

Presented annually by Chamber Music New Zealand, it is the only nationwide chamber music competition for young secondary school musicians and composers in the country.

The purpose of the Contest is to encourage young musicians regardless of standard or experience, to perform together and strive towards excellence. It also aims to provide an opportunity for musical activities within schools to have a link with the wider community at both a local and national level.
