50th Jubilee Appeal
Thank you for celebrating the Contest's 50th Jubilee year with us.
We would love you to join us in giving the gift of chamber music to young New Zealanders by donating to our Jubilee Appeal.
Donate to our Jubilee Appeal today.
After more than 30 years of continuous corporate support, the future of the Contest was thrown into serious doubt in 1998 when it was left without a sponsor. Since then we have continued with the very generous support of donors like you, as well as community funding.
For many people, their first encounter with chamber music is through the Contest, and in 2014, nearly 2000 students from 15 regional centres took part.
For Bryony Gibson-Cornish, a recent viola graduate of The Juilliard School in New York, the Contest opened her eyes to the power of chamber music:
“The contest means so many different things to different people. You really get the sense of grassroots to excellence, and it’s so special that each performer in the contest, no matter what their level, will get something out of participating. With so many successful alumni in the contest’s fifty-year history, it is an honour to follow in their footsteps.”
Thank you to all of our supporters.
Our supporters are a vital part of our chamber music community, enabling us to bring the best international and New Zealand artists and ensembles to cities and towns across the country.
We are grateful to our generous donors who support Chamber Music New Zealand throughout the year.
