Louth Contemporary Music Society

Contemporary Music Society

Founded in Louth by Artistic Director Eamonn Quinn in 2006, the Louth Contemporary Music Society has transformed the Irish border town into a world-class centre for contemporary classical music.

Previously, LCMS has commissioned world-renowned composers, including Arvo Pärt, Sir John Tavener, Salvatore Sciarrino, David Lang and Terry Riley, and has featured performances from sought-after musicians such as Philip Glass and John Zorn.

Elsewhere, LCMS has released twelve recordings, from the mesmerising ‘The Song of Songs’ featuring David Lang’s world premiere ‘just after song of songs’ with Trio Mediaeval and others, to Linda Catlin Smith’s ‘Meadow’ which was listed as a notable recording of 2020 by Alex Ross in the New Yorker.

Formed in 2006, Louth Contemporary Music Society (LCMS) has a strong track record for excellence and innovation in contemporary music programming in Ireland. It not only presents the leading international composers of our time in person but fosters genuine engagement through new commissions and cleverly-curated collaborations with leading international and Irish performers. Excellent reviews have been written in Gramophone, The Guardian, The Irish Times, The Uk Independent, International Record Review, Backtrack among others.

WildKat is delighted to be working with LCMS for its 2021 festival, ‘We Sing for the Future’. The UK campaign covers PR and Marketing.
