The purpose of the concerts is primarily for musicians to gain experience performing on stage. A musician can be an expert musician, but without stage experience, usually their stage performances have room for improvement. The concerts are also intended to provide an enjoyable experience for the audience. A wide variety of music is performed, by soloists and small groups. Acoustic instruments and voice are used, with no recorded backing music.
To minimize discomfort to both performers and the audience, applicants must have achieved grade 3 or an equivalent playing level. Allocation of performance time is usually provided on a first come, first served basis. The maximum allocated performance time per applicant is 12 minutes. Musicians outside Tauranga, and professionals who wish to display their work are also welcome. Additional information is in the Downloads section below.
