Following the success of our Festival Pass system last Festival, we are again offering Festival Passes for the most enthusiastic and dedicated chamber music lovers this time around.

This year the Festival pass includes two complimentary special 'Up Close' events which are exclusive to Festival Pass holders and Impresario donors.

The first will be a journey to our stunning Nelson Lakes National Park to hear the Ying Quartet perform in the delightful Chapel By The Lake, followed by lunch at the Alpine Lodge.

The second will be a trip to explore Nelson's wine making area 'the Moutere'. We'll visit an art glass blowing studio, hear the Song Company perform in a country church and then enjoy a picnic lunch at Neudorf Wineries.

Festival passes are available only through to the 30th September and we encourage early booking to avoid disappointment.
