Chamber Music Contest: National Final

Hi there

A quick note to remind you that in Auckland this Saturday evening is the National Final of the chamber music contest for secondary school students, the New Zealand Community Trust Chamber Music Contest.

For those unfamiliar with the contest, you could say its much like a classical version of the 'rockquest'. Eight groups of secondary school musicians from Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland are battling it out for the top prize of the contest - cash and musical accolades.
