Chamber Music New Zealand is the largest presenter of top quality chamber music concerts throughout the country. We exist to develop, nourish, and support New Zealanders to create and experience live chamber music. Our chamber music activities are divided into three strands: The Encompass strand includes all the concert performances that we present around the country. Encounter incorporates all of our life-long learning activities such as the annual secondary schools NZCT Chamber Music Contest, regular free pre-concert talks and music workshops, masterclasses and open rehearsals. Encore is the Chamber Music New Zealand Supporter Programme. As a not for profit organisation committed to sustaining a level of excellence we rely heavily on donations and gifts from community trusts, private donors and corporate sponsors.
