About Us

Ensemble Offspring

Ensemble Offspring are champions of adventurous new music. The group embraces open-minded music-making in all its forms, from seminal chamber work to free improvisation, alongside the creation of striking interdisciplinary productions. Based in Sydney, Ensemble Offspring is led by acclaimed percussionist, Claire Edwardes, and the core sextet features some of Australia’s most innovative and virtuosic performers. Winners of the 2016 Art Music Award for Excellence by an Organisation for the groups’ more than 20 years contribution to Australian music, Ensemble Offspring has performed throughout Australia and the world – from Katherine to Hong Kong and Brugge to Wagga Wagga.
