New Zealand School of Music

NZSM presents more than 100 events each year, ranging from informal concerts through opera, orchestra, big band and gamelan performances to lectures and masterclasses.

Many of these events involve visiting professional ensembles, soloists, academics and artists alongside an NZSM teaching staff which includes some of New Zealand's most accomplished performers, lecturers, composers and conductors.

While these events are part of study programmes for undergraduate and postgraduate students, the general public are frequently welcome and most events are free of charge.

Events are published on the NZSM website and included in Dawn Chorus, a free monthly e-newsletter. To subscribe to Dawn Chorus, simply send an email with your name and locality to

For some events, special arrangements can be made for educational groups to have a more in-depth experience by meeting musicians, exploring the music through discussion, analysis and musicological insight, or observing rehearsals. Contact the Events Coordinator to discuss possibilities.

NZSM is a joint enterprise of Victoria University Wellington and Massey University.
