Ensemble Offspring

BEGINNINGS TO NEW ENDS

June 24, 2018 @ 3:00 pm

Generations converge as Ensemble Offspring pits Artistic Director and leading percussionist Claire Edwardes against up-and-coming instrumental talent Georgina Oakes.

Claire performs a set of colourful percussion solos, written in collaboration with emerging female composers. Alongside her will be Ensemble Offspring’s first-ever Associate Artist, clarinettist Georgina Oakes, who returns from 10 years in Europe to wow us with her new music pedigree working with the likes of Pierre Boulez and Tristan Murail. We can’t wait to welcome her on board. You’ll want front row seats for this exhilarating tilt at future sounds featuring gongs, drums, winds and even recited text.

“A heroic performance by Edwardes.”

“Ensemble Offspring never fails to deliver exciting programs and vibrant performances… Beginnings to New Ends was no exception.”
