    CMC has maintained and developed our collection of scores, recordings and materials in the 2019 by accessioning a total of 305 scores and 165 Recordings.

    The centre continued to develop a new Collection Management System and completed phase I in November 2019 with capital funding from the Dept. of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. During this period, CMC also developed a new section of CMC’s site for the Irish Language Art Song Project, featuring recordings, scores and related materials to enable these new works in the Irish language to be performed.

    CMC also continued to run a number of professional development programmes for its composers including maintaining our international residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris, a flagship choral development programme with Chamber Choir Ireland (Choral Sketches) and orchestral skills development programme with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra (Composer Lab).

    CMC launched a podcast series, amplify, in October 2019 and continued to increase our international activities representing new music from Ireland at international networks, conferences, trade fairs and showcases including Classical:Next, the International Association of Music Information Centres and the International Association of Music Libraries.

    In partnership with the New Music Dublin Festival we hosted the second NMDX delegate programme, inviting international festival directors, venue programmers and broadcasters to engage with those active in new music in Ireland during the festival weekend. International partnerships in this period included the Embassy of Ireland in Estonia, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (UK), Plural Ensemble, Madrid (Spain), the Budapest Music Centre and the Embassy of Ireland in Hungary.
