Michael Hill International Violin Competition

Queenstown plays host to Rounds I and II where, over four days, a feast of spellbinding acts of virtuosity, heartstring-tugging treasures and heroic masterpieces are performed by the top 16 of the world’s finest young violinists. 

Audiences can experience the thrill of the hunt up close and personal in the intimate Queenstown Memorial Centre and judge for themselves who will eventually win the grand prize.  Attend one session (about three hours), or purchase one of the 100 session passes which provides flexibility throughout the Queen’s Birthday holiday weekend.  Many audience members get fully stuck into the event.
