This year’s NZCT Chamber Music Contest is currently underway, with around 2,000 young Kiwi musicians and composers competing for top honours. The contest, which is the longest running secondary school chamber music competition in New Zealand, provides wonderful experience and opportunities for young musicians.
A $5,000 NZCT grant has made a big difference to Christchurch’s Halswell Tennis Club. The funding was used to pay for coaching for the club’s 70 junior players and 34 junior beginner players.
An NZCT grant to Auckland City Mission contributed towards the salary of one of the Mission’s homelessness social workers. The homeless people the Mission work with have difficult lives.
