2017 Adam Chamber Music Festival

February 2017

The biennial Adam Chamber Music Festival returns from February 2 - 11 2017, bringing with it a feast of chamber music spread over ten glorious days in the delightful surrounds of sunny Nelson. The New Zealand String Quartet plays a major part in this festival both as performers and through the artistic co-directorship of our first violinist Helene Pohl and violist Gillian Ansell. The festival features international guest artists as well as leading New Zealand artists performing exciting chamber music works, many made possible by the musical collaborations created during the festival.

We love this festival! It's a special time of relaxed summer musical pleasure in this beautiful setting in Nelson, a chance to make new friends and renew old ones, and to be lifted out of everyday cares and transported by the inspiration of great composers and performers. Helene and Gillian
