The Rotorua Music Federation (Inc) specialises in presenting live music by chamber-music ensembles and soloists. Our focus is on high-quality performances, which are usually performed by professional musicians. Although many of our members love music in the western "classical" tradition, we present works from all over the world and from mediaeval times right up to the present - we've even had some NZ premieres of new work.
We normally run about four to six concerts per year, some of which are part of the Chamber Music New Zealand series, while from time to time others may be organised independently by us. Most of our concerts are held in the Concert Chamber of the Sir Howard Morrison Performing Arts Centre, Fenton Street, Rotorua (map), although due to the temporary closure of this venue at the end of 2017, we have found different venues for our 2019 concerts, details of which are given under each concert.
Subscribers pay a reduced price per concert and receive newsletters. By subscribing, concert-goers also support the Rotorua Music Federation by providing funds at the beginning of the year, which enables the committee to better manage the year's programme. The committee appreciates this support and you can find details of how to subscribe here. However, all concerts are open to both subscribers and visitors, and casual tickets are available at the venue or from the secretary.
