Where is Ensemble Offspring in the first week of March? Chasing the sun up to Noosa to create some fresh new sounds with emerging composers from around the world. We join NOOSA ISAM as Ensemble in Residence for a week of masterclasses, seminars and workshops culminating in two concerts on Friday 8th March.

There will be performances of new music composed in Noosa especially for the festival as well as works by internationally renowned mentor composers Ofer-Ben Amots (Colorado), Jan Jirasek (Prague), Jack Frerer (Manhattan), Paul Smith (Sydney), Rob Melbourne (Noosaville), along with 17 music students from Colorado College and and 3 composers from Portugal, U.S.A and the U.K. We look forward to hanging out with old friends Viney-Grinberg Duo and other international guests during the week.
