Auckland 2018

Now is the time to begin thinking about and preparing for participation in the forthcoming RSCMNZ combined Australia and NZ Summer School 2018.

Dates: 9th -16th January 2018.

Course Director is Andrew Lumsden, Organist & Master of the Choristers, Winchester Cathedral, UK, ably supported by renowned local specialists.

Auckland NZ is the venue and Holy Trinity Cathedral, with its 2 new stunning organs and the beautifully completed Selwyn Chapel, is the hub.

Workshops include:

* NZ composers of anthems and hymns
* Making the most of whatever resources you have

Other aspects could include:

* Informal forums on Clergy/musician relations

* Examinations for Voice for Life Awards
* Organ and Singing Master classes.

Time-table includes:
