Belmont-Prize 2018
for contemporaray music

Nominated Prizewinner

Eamonn Quinn
Curator and Founder of LCMS
Louth Contemporary Music Society
Dundalk, Ireland




“The LCMS is the brainchild of someone whose knowledge and sensitivity in the area of contemporary music is completely extraordinary. I have met many people professionally involved in contemporary music, whether as composers, performers, critics, administrators or university professors, but nobody more attuned than Mr. Quinn to what is going on. Not only that Mr. Quinn has a remarkable degree of acumen in detecting what combination of repertory, performers and venue will create the unique events he goes on presenting, time and again.”
