Chamber Music Finals

This weekend we have 3 Rangi chamber music groups attending the National semifinals and finals of the NZCT Chamber Music contest, in Wellington.  Only 12 groups get to the semifinals from throughout NZ, so to have 3 from Rangi is extraordinary.  We are the only school with 3 groups in this event.

The 12 semifinalists perform during the day on Saturday August 5th, after which 6 finalists are announced, who then perform on Sunday afternoon August 6th at 3pm.  The final is live streamed At the finals, all groups are automatic Gold Award winners, with one group of these six awarded the overall winner with a prize of $6000.  In addition to this 1st place prize, there will be a People’s Choice Award which is awarded through audience text vote

People’s Choice Award

This award is presented to a Finalist group chosen by an audience text vote at the completion of the Finals. Each member of the group will receive a certificate during the Award Ceremony following the National Final on Sunday 6 August 2017. 

We’d love your support, so mark it in your calendars and make sure to text your vote in!
