Welcome to the National Concerto Competition – New Zealand’s most distinguished classical competition for talented musicians aged 25 years and under. The Competition provides an opportunity to perform, a place to celebrate talent, and a platform to launch national and international careers.
56th National Concerto Competition
Presented by the National Concerto Competition Trust, the National Concerto Competition is held in Christchurch and caters to orchestral instruments and the piano in alternate years.

The National Concerto Competition provides finalists the opportunity to perform their chosen work in a public performance, accompanied by a symphony orchestra. It is a format that has been retained since the Competition’s beginning in 1967 and has provided the launch pad for numerous young Kiwis to establish national and international careers in performance music.
