New Zealand's International Chamber Music Festival

Every two years we host a 10 day international festival of wonderful chamber music in Nelson - a small resort town at the top of New Zealand’s South Island - famous for its boutique vineyards, seafood, wild places and relaxed lifestyle.

The Adam Chamber Music Festival attracts audiences from around the world who enjoy rarely performed chamber music made possible through exciting collaborations between renowned international artists and leading New Zealand chamber musicians, in our acoustically acclaimed venues.

Our next festival will be held from the 1st - 10th February 2024. Programme and tickets available from the 1st September 2023. Be sure to keep up to date by signing up for our e-newsletter.

Planning for the 2024 Adam Chamber Music Festival is well underway. To celebrate the announcement of our international guests, we are holding a ‘Festival Sampler Evening’ on Thursday 9th February 2023 featuring the New Zealand String Quartet.

After some challenging years, we’re thrilled to be presenting a very special programme in 2024, and without giving anything away, we’re confident we’ll get some enthusiastic reactions! Remember too, that this is just a sampler – the full programme will be announced on 1st September 2023.

Held in Nelson’s picturesque Boathouse, the evening will start with a glass of bubbly and nibbles that will be followed by an intimate concert in the true chamber music tradition.

Tickets are $70 (plus service fee).

Book your ticket to the Adam Sampler Evening online or through NCMA.
