About us

The Société de musique contemporaine du Québec is an institution that has been at the heart of musical creativity for more than 50 years.

With its concerts, its Homage Series, its Montreal/New Music International Festival (MNM), its youth-music programme, radio broadcasts, North American and European tours, a competition for composers, and more than twenty full-length recordings, the work of the SMCQ has resulted in a fertile breeding ground for new works of art, commissions, and masterful performances of contemporary music “classics”.
