The National Concerto Competition is a classical music Competition for young people aged under 25 years. The Competition is viewed as one of the major classical music events for youth in New Zealand and attracts many entries from both local and national participants.

This year (2016/2017) is a very special year as we are celebrating our 50th competition which is a huge milestone! As was in the first inaugural competition back in 1967 we are having both Piano and Instrumental competitors. In total we have 56 competitors which 31 are Instrumental and 25 are Piano. Many of the past contestants have gone onto prominent careers in music both nationally and internationally and it is planned to have Alumni activities at this time.

From the Preliminary rounds 8 Semi-Finalists will be selected (4 Instrumental and 4 Piano) and from there 4 Finalists will be selected (2 Instrumental and 2 Piano) for the Final on Saturday 4th March 2017.

Please come along and support these young, very talented musicians in our Jubilee year!
