Pandemic Response

One of the best things about music is that it brings people together. Thank you all for helping us make that possible.

NCMA has a wonderful, vibrant and active community, and we will remain open as long as we are advised our community and users are safe to gather here.  We have been very lucky that we have had time to carefully plan our pandemic response, drawing on the experience of cities, venues and schools around NZ and overseas.

Please be vigilant in following this important advice when attending an event or lesson at NCMA.

As the risk rises in the coming weeks we may need to cancel events and lessons, and we may need to ask for your patience and generosity at times.

Our response to the spread of the novel coronavirus will be updated regularly on our website and Facebook page, and if cancellations affect you directly we will be in touch by email, text message or phone.


Specific information for members of our community follows, and will be updated regularly as the situation develops.
