Composer Brian Irvine Appointed to CMC Board

Belfast based Composer Brian Irvine, has been appointed as a new Board member to the Contemporary Music Centre. Evonne Ferguson, Director, The Contemporary Music Centre, current Board members and staff of the Centre are delighted with this appointment and warmly welcome Brian to the board.
Born in Belfast, Brian Irvine has been Associate Composer with the Ulster Orchestra for the last four years. He composes for and conducts his own 12–piece ensemble, which performs worldwide. His work includes orchestral works, chamber music, operas, film scores as well as solo and ensemble pieces. He has collaborated with and been commissioned by many diverse musical personalities throughout Europe and the United States. He has won a number of awards for his music including the British Composers Award for Opera and the BBC Radio 3 Jazz Award.
On his appointment Brian Irvine says "I am delighted to be part of the board at CMC. The sheer volume, quality, diversity, character and personality of modern music making in Ireland both North and South is an extraordinary and unique phenomena: a vast out pouring of sound that seems disproportionate to the size of the Island. It is a landscape full of life, colour, insight and beauty and is of the Island's greatest assets worthy of distribution and celebration on an international level."

The Board of the Contemporary Music Centre consists of seven voluntary members: Mary T. McAuliffe (Chairperson), Professor Mícheal Ó Súilleabháin, Róisín O’Connell, Fergus Sheil, Dr Cliona Doris, Jacqueline Kelly, and Brian Irvine. Brian Irvine replaces conductor and composer Proinnsías Ó Duinn who stepped down in October 2010, after a number of years of dedicated service to the board of CMC. 

Speaking on Brian’s appointment, Mary T. McAuliffe (Chairperson), says “I am delighted to welcome Brian Irvine to the Board of the Contemporary Music Centre…he is an incredibly talented and prolific composer/performer and a passionate exponent of new music, I look forward to his participation on the Board and the undoubted dynamisim and expertise that he will bring”.
