Welcome to MENZA Canterbury – Music Education Canterbury – MEC

We run Strum Strike and Blow, a festival for ukuleles, marimbas and recorders, which sees 1,200 students perform together in the Horncastle Arena with the support of the Christchurch Civic Music Council. This has three workshops leading up to it.
