Festivals at NCMA

NCMA has a history of producing its own festivals - the first being in 1994 to celebrate our 100th birthday.


With the closure of our buildings in 2013, the decision was made not to produce any further festivals until our facilities were fully functional again. Watch this space!

Adam Chamber Music Festival

NCMA is the traditional home of the world renowned Adam Chamber Music Festival. The festival is held in Nelson every 2 years and brings some of the world's leading chamber musicians to Nelson over 10 days.

NCMA looks forward to welcoming the Adam Chamber Music Festival back to the Nelson School of Music Auditorium from Thursday 31st January - Saturday 9th February in 2019.
