Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand

Experience chamber music, up-close and at its very finest...
Each year, the Adam Summer School returns to Nelson to thrill audiences, with two spectacular Finale Concerts showcasing New Zealand's top young string and piano musicians in performance.
"It seems amazing that the brevity of a single week could contain the depth of what feels like months of learning."
This year, for 30 students comprising 7 chamber ensembles, these two concerts are the culmination of a week's intensive tutoring under the internationally acclaimed New Zealand String Quartet and pianist, Stephen De Pledge. The opportunity to work in depth on works by composers, Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Shostakovich, produces performances to enlighten, open minds and above all, surpass every expectation!
The Adam Summer School is seen as a career launching pad for the next generation of musicians. Around 320 students have attended the School in its 24 year existence, with many having furthered their studies overseas to pursue chamber music at an international level.
The 2018 Adam Summer School is generously sponsored by the Adam Foundation.
