Education Programme Sponsorship

The main goal of our education programme is to inspire, encourage and educate people of all ages in the enjoyment of music. To continue to expand our programme nationwide, we urgently need to commit greater resources to this important part of NZSO activity.

As corporates have long realised, investing in the communities where their employees and customers live and work makes good business sense.The NZSO is serious about investing in the future of our community: through our passion for music, we bring a breadth of learning and enrichment to the lives of people of all ages, experiences and backgrounds.

Our Education team and many of our players work with a wide range of people of all ages, socio-economic backgrounds, and ethnicity.

It’s our business to understand yours. The NZSO can help companies deliver elements of their CSR strategy, through support of our Education and Outreach work.
