Other Events

We recommend these events and music schools around the country:

Opononi Music Camp

This unique music school takes place over five intense days in January of each year. Suited to a wide range of abilities, the school is run by Whangarei Youth Music, and takes place next to the rugged Hokianga Harbour. You’ll work hard, and come away a better musician, and you’ll have a great time doing it!

The Bay of Plenty Music School

Despite the name, the Bay of Plenty Music School moves from area to area (Taupō, Whakatane, New Plymouth…) in order to share the demands of organising a music weekend for concert band, orchestra, AND choir! It occurs annually in the middle weekend of the April holidays, and it’s a great way to meet musicians from all around the country. A highlight for many is the informal Saturday “blackboard concert”, where people who may have only just met perform together.

Masters Weekend of Music

Bay Cities’ Symphonic Band is hosting “Masters Weekend of Music” March 23-25 2018 under the direction of conductors, John Snowling and Brian Kennedy. It will be held in Hastings.
The weekend is open to any competent player over 40 years of age who enjoys concert band music-making. Registration is $50.00. Contact Murray for more information: murraysivewright@gmail.com.
