The primary objectives of the Festival are:
- to provide the public with the opportunity to experience and learn about contemporary music
- to commission and/or perform new works from composers of varied nationalities
- to allow school pupils, students and members of the general public to compose and perform new music
- Every year, the Festival endeavours to present the latest trends and developments in contemporary composition, with a particular emphasis on chamber music, mixed-media events, electroacoustic music and experimental music. New or recent works from artists of international standing are performed, where possible, in the presence of the composer.
