Rangitoto College has a proud history of Chamber Music and each year around 15 chamber music groups are formed. These small ensembles receive intensive coaching from specialist tutors and will enter the Chamber Music New Zealand Schools Chamber Music Contest each year. Rehearsals are on Mondays during school time and sessions are 45 minutes per group.
Students in Chamber Music Groups should also play in the Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra or Sinfonia Orchestra, and might consider entering the Annual Rangitoto College Piano and Instrumental Competitions.
