Music Centre Slovakia (MCS)
Music Centre Slovakia (MCS) is a government state-subsidized institution established by the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic. Its mission is to encourage Slovak music culture by organizing concerts, bringing pieces of Slovak composers to the stages, publishing sheet music and music books, documenting the music life in Slovakia and promoting Slovak music culture abroad.
The origins of a State institution involved in organizing music life in Slovakia go back to 1969, the year when the Slovkoncert agency was founded, operating as a guarantor in the field of music festivals and concerts both of “classical” and “popular” music. In 1997, it was integrated in the National Music Centre, while in 1999 the Slovkoncert was turned into the Music Centre consisting of four departments: documentation, publishing, external relations and economy.
