Commenting on the significance of the new Music Composition Centre, Provost, Dr Patrick Prendergast says: “Creativity is central to the human spirit. It’s also an economic force. The arts are intrinsic to any strategy for the social and economic regeneration of this country. Trinity is committed to fostering and harnessing creativity. The new Centre will be a creative forum, drawing on Trinity's long tradition of music composition to produce the radical composers of tomorrow. I’m excited for the students, for Trinity, and for audiences around the world.”

The College has an illustrious record in music composition which in recent times has expanded to include a focus on bridging the gap between the conventional acoustic environment of concert music and the cutting-edge developments in music technology. The Music Composition Centre is providing a new platform to produce active, practical composers equipped for the emerging music of the 21st century.
