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.
Nimbusad through Dave Knight have been long time sponsors of the Festival as well as providing our wonderful graphic arts.
Bowater Toyota have kindly sponsored access to vehicles to the Festival and especially the Troubadours.
Grant 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 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.
Grants from the Lion Foundation and the New Zealand Community Trust provide important funding to specific aspects 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
- Christopher Jonas Photographs
