Every year experienced NZSO musicians work with talented and keen young musicians from schools around the country to mentor them in orchestral music and orchestral playing.

These young music students pair up with NZSO musicians to receive mentoring sessions, coupled with NZSO rehearsals and concerts. The programme caters for young musicians aged between 13 and 18 who will be attending secondary school.

Due to Covid -19, the NZSO is delivering mentoring online to this year’s students. Details on the 2021 NZSO Mentoring Programme will be available in August of this year.
