Blue Silence

September 16, 2022 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

Ensemble Offspring’s core members Claire Edwardes (marimba) and Jason Noble (bass clarinet) team up with acclaimed harpist Emily Granger to unearth masterpieces from the depths of living musical imagination. Granger’s harp will feature in a solo penned by her partner and local legend Tristan Coelho, complemented by rousing chamber works from Nathan Daughtrey (USA), Caleb Burhans (USA), Gunnar Andreas Kristinsson (Iceland), and a timely trio arrangement of the reflective Blue Silence by Australian treasure Elena Kats-Chernin. To top it all off, you’ll be captivated by a brand new duet for bass clarinet and marimba by Gerard Brophy inspired by Turkey’s eastern coastal city of Van, titled Just outside Van…

Note: all patrons above the age of 16 must present their COVID-19 vaccination certificate upon entry. Patrons aged 12 and above must wear face masks inside the venue.
