Ensemble Offspring presents their Birdsong at Dusk program that invites you to journey into the Australian bush as part of Melbourne Digital Concert Hall.
With chamber works written especially for the members of Ensemble Offspring by the who’s who of Australian composers, and celebrating the fact that the majority are female, the program features pieces by the next generation of Australian creators: Kate Moore, Felicity Wilcox, alongside established composers such as Gerard Brophy and Jon Rose.
