Presented by The Hill Family Foundation for Art and Music

Queenstown 4-7 June

An exhilarating event of fine music – weaving the region’s homegrown talent and New Zealand’s outstanding musicians.

The Wakatipu Music Festival is conceived to be a classical music festival that brings together New Zealand’s outstanding emerging artists and leading professional musicians, together with local performers, grassroots music initiatives and dedicated local and national educators.

The Festival comprises three interconnecting components:

  1. Young Artists Showcase and Career Development for 12 leading NZ musicians (age 16-26) or any orchestra instrument, piano or voice (audition deadline 6 April)
  2. Community Engagement workshops and performance showcase for Central Otago-based musicians, music teachers and ensembles
  3. Training Ground paid apprenticeship in Festival production for Central Otago-based early career practitioners

Tickets to attend the Festival will be on sale from April
