New Music Student Marathon

Ciaran Hope at the 2015 New Music Marathon

CMC has been organising the annual student new music marathon since 2006 and it is now firmly established as an important day in the calendar of composition and performance students not only for the performance opportunity that it offers but also for the opportunity for students from all around the Island of Ireland to meet and discuss their work.

The day involves a series of concerts featuring the work of student composers performed by student performers from universities and colleges throughout the island of Ireland. The event is hosted in a different university or college each year.
