Ensemble Offspring statement in response to COVID-19, Tuesday 17 March.

Ensemble Offspring would like to assure our patrons and supporters that we are monitoring the development of the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) crisis closely and adhering to the advice given by Federal and State Governments and health authorities.

Some forthcoming events in our 2020 program will be cancelled and others may proceed. Notifications of event cancellations will be published on our website, newsletter and social media channels as news is confirmed. Anyone who has pre-purchased tickets for a cancelled event should contact the venue or ticket seller for a refund or credit, as per the vendor’s policies.

On current advice from City of Sydney Council and inline with current Federal Government guidelines, our next event, Fever Pitch, will continue as scheduled on Sunday 5 April. This is an outdoor walking event with small audience numbers diffused across multiple outdoor locations. We are in contact with local authorities regarding the staging of this event and will cancel should the current advice change.

The safety and well-being of our patrons, supporters, artists and the wider community will remain our highest priority.

Refer to our website and social media channels for all updated Ensemble Offspring information.

Please stay safe and show consideration for others. We are in unchartered territory as a nation and need to protect each other, our families and our communities.
