Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Sunday 19th February 2017
The epitome of chamber music... the 2017 Adam Summer School presents two spectacular Finale Concerts, showcasing New Zealand's top young musicians in fine performance. For 27 students, comprising seven chamber ensembles, these concerts are the culmination of a week's intensive tutoring under the internationally acclaimed New Zealand String Quartet and Diedre Irons. The opportunity to work in depth on repertoire - Beethoven, Dvorak, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Prokofiev, Shostakovich - ensures that these performances will entrance audiences.
For 23 years the Adam Summer School has been returning to Nelson each February, and in that time, around 300 students have gained valuable insight and guidance. Many use it as the launching pad to furthering their professional music careers.
The 2017 Adam Summer School is generously supported by the Adam Foundation, Principal Sponsor.
