Gisborne Competition Winners with Orchestra Wellington

Orchestra Wellington celebrates and supports the fantastic quality of contestants in the Gisborne International Music Competition by rewarding the Grand Prize winner an opportunity to perform a concerto together with the Orchestra as part of our upcoming Subscription Series programme.

Established in 1989, the competition provides young players of orchestral instruments on the cusp of professional careers the opportunity to hone their performance skills against their colleagues from around the world and to learn from jurors who are themselves musicians of the highest calibre. Past finalists can now be found playing in orchestras and chamber groups throughout the world such as the NZSO and APO, the Sydney and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, the Macau Orchestra, the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Philharmonia, the Hanover Band, the New Zealand Trio and the Australian String Quartet, while others have successfully pursued careers as concert soloists.
