Young Artist Programme
Through a national online audition process, we have selected and invited the following 12 of New Zealand’s top emerging classical music talents to participate in the Festival’s Young Artist Programme.
In Queenstown from 11-18 April, they will receive coaching from our Festival artists, rehearse and perform chamber music with one another and participate in career development workshops to hone their professional skills. Each Young Artist will also be given a 30-minute public performance opportunity that is professionally recorded for their future use (eg. auditions, profile-building, etc.) and broadcast by RNZC with syndication to international media outlet, The Violin Channel.
