About this Event

Ensemble Offspring

INGUZ

Thursday 19 November, 7.30pm

Cellblock Theatre, National Art School

Ensemble Offspring are Sydney’s musical mavericks, uniting the most innovative instrumentalists in Australia with a broad collective of collaborators to explore new ideas through living new music. Led by acclaimed percussionist Claire Edwardes, the ensemble comprises a core line-up of some of Australia’s most well-regarded and virtuosic musicians: Lamorna Nightingale (flute), Jason Noble (clarinet), Véronique Serret (violin), Blair Harris & Freya Schack-Arnott (cello), Bree van Reyk (percussion) and Zubin Kanga & Ben Kopp (piano). Together they champion living composers and create musical experiences that stimulate the senses and pique curiosity. We support emerging and as-yet-unheard composers, in particular championing Australian female identifying and First Nations artists.

INGUZ

Celebrating spring, fertility, the moon and renewal Ensemble Offspring presents this tasting plate of living new music featuring works from home and across the globe. We remember the creative genius that was Cor Fuhler (NL/AUS), we premiere new works from Gerry Brophy (Aus) and Christopher Fox (UK) and we revisit duos by living legends Liza Lim and Kaija Saariaho. Be a part of the live music making experience after the longest hiatus in living history, as part of Great Southern Nights at the Cell Block Theatre this November!

Great Southern Nights is a music event which will bring 1,000 COVID-safe performances to live music venues in Greater Sydney and regional NSW in November (Australian Music Month).

This event is a NSW Government initiative, delivered by its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW in partnership with the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) to stimulate the revival of the live music and entertainment sectors and in turn the visitor economy in the recovery phase of COVID-19.

Venues will present 1,000 gigs showcasing established, emerging and local Australian artists, across a multitude of venues around NSW. Great Southern Nights will culminate in Australia’s premier music industry event, the ARIA Awards.

All music events will be programmed in line with current NSW Government health advice regarding physical distancing and venue capacity of public gatherings.

The National Art School is pleased to be a venue for this significant initiative.
