NZCT Chamber Music Contest

2018 Results HERE

The Contest is the perfect opportunity to encourage young musicians, regardless of standard or experience, to compose and to perform chamber music and strive towards excellence. This iconic secondary school musical event is held annually throughout the country in June and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015. We’re looking forward to another 50 years of inspiring youth music-making and to celebrate the fantastic musicians and composers that have launched their careers through the Contest.
