Ensemble Offspring are Sydney’s musical mavericks, uniting innovative Australian instrumentalists with a broad collective of collaborators to champion the music of tomorrow. Together we explore new ideas through living music that leaps across art form. Driven by discovery, Ensemble Offspring presents intricately crafted experiential performances that transcend genre and place, tapping into the innate curiosity and adventurous spirit of our audiences. Featuring a core line up of world class musicians (violin, cello, flute, clarinet, piano and percussion), Ensemble Offspring also provides opportunities to a broad range of Australian artists and creators, nurturing emerging and traditionally under-represented musicians to build a thriving culture for the 21st century.
At Ensemble Offspring we pride ourselves on the dissemination of music that inspires and arouses, excites and provokes. Commissioning, workshopping and premiering new music is at the heart of what we do, forging original pathways and opportunities for musicians while building a thriving and relevant Australian culture for the 21st century. We’re proud of our 25-year track record of commissioning new work with an impressive output of more than 300 premieres.
