The Contemporary Music Centre is an all-Ireland, non-profit educational organisation, founded in 1985 by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon to support and encourage the composition and performance of serious music. As a largely government-funded body, it operates as an independent organisation but with national status and official recognition as the focus for contemporary music in Ireland.\n\nThe Centre is funded by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO). Project funding has also been received from the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs, the British Council and Radio Telefís Éireann (RTÉ).\n\n
