We hit the streets

AH TEMPE!

As part of Ensemble Offsprings week long 25th birthday activities, we present a live musical walkathon around the streets and homes of the inner west suburb of Tempe!

Spectacular music in the safe and open areas of our own musicians’ humble abodes – that’s what you can expect from Ah Tempe! This will be a special celebratory event which grants you a sneak peek into three musical homes. You can choose to join in our live walking tour in a safe group of 20 – or tune in from your home via our live Facebook stream.

House 1: Ensemble Offspring’s own Claire, Jason and Lamorna bring you a bite-sized program of Australian works, including a new duo by our 2019 Noisy Women Composer, Nicole Murphy.

House 2: Musical couple and Tempe residents, composer Tristan Coelho and harpist Emily Granger will welcome with an intriguing performance featuring harp, piano and electronics.

House 3: Dreambox Collective duo Alice Chance (a Tempe resident herself) and Chloe Chung present “Avant-Garden” – a structured improvisation exploring combinations of flutes, voice, accordion, household and garden objects – plus a small amount of un-intimidating audience participation, including a series of mini improvisations. The pair will create a playful space somewhere between a plant and a person nursery.

There will be two walking groups:

3 pm – 4:30pm Walking Group 1 
(and streamed on Facebook Live with a selfie stick)
4pm – 5:30pm Walking Group 2

Thanks a lot for Ah Tempe – it was just fantastic! It couldn’t have been a better first concert back after the complete lack of real live music over the past six months. again, thanks a million for organising it, and for coming up with something so magical.” Audience member

I really loved the differing combinations of performers and instruments and the pleasure you all displayed in performing and engaging with your audience. I also enjoyed listening to the music outdoors and the planes, the traffic, the dogs and other noises blended in really well with what we were hearing.” Audience member
