The Art of Giving: Limelight

Ensemble Offspring recently featured in this Limelight article, exploring the role of philanthropy in the Australian arts. Specifically, the article looks at Paul Dean’s new work for Ensemble Offspring, commissioned by Mark Wakely as the 2023 Steven Alward Memorial Music Commission. His work the weight we carry will premiere in Still Life with Avalanche at the Sydney Opera House on August 26, 2023.

“The motivation to give is essentially the fact that what we present at Ensemble Offspring is on the cutting edge of culture and art in Australia and indeed internationally. Typically, donors are drawn to being involved in the creation process and because of our track record here, they trust us.”
– Claire Edwardes, Artistic Director
