Sponsors and Funders
Support from sponsors and funding bodies enable us to produce our festival to the highest international standards. We are grateful and proud to be associated with the following investment partnerships:
The Nelson City Council is the principal sponsor of the Adam Chamber Music Festival. It invests in the Festival through its Events Strategy because of the substantial economic impact the Festival has on the Nelson economy.
Naming Rights Sponsor
Long time supporters of the Festival are Denis and Verna Adam through the Adam Foundation. Without their support the Festival would probably not have survived to where it is today.
Golden Edge Nelson Pine Industries are a long time major sponsor of the Festival and sponsor the Opening and Closing concerts in the Festival every two years.
Major Funding Bodies
The Festival receives funding from Creative New Zealand for specific creative aspects of the Festival including composition commissions, lecture series and specific presentations.
The Rata Foundation (formerly Canterbury Community Trust is a long time supporter of the Festival and provides funding for community aspects of the Festival.
The Turnovsky Endowment Trust is a strong supporter of the Arts in New Zealand and is a regular supporter of the Festival.
We've described as New Zealand's only truly international music festival and that reputation comes with the assistance through major collaborations with partners in the Arts.
We're thrilled to be associated with:
- The New Zealand String Quartet
- Chamber Music New Zealand
- The Michael Hill International Violin Competition
- RNZ Concert
Special thanks go to Chamber Music New Zealand who strongly support our Troubadour programme. As well as giving the Troubadours marketing and management advice, they also tour them in their Encompass Concert Series.
Further sponsors and funders for the 2017 Festival will be announced in due course. To enquire about sponsorship opportunities in the 2017 Festival contact Bob Bickerton.
