Birdsong at Dusk

31 July @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm AEST

$20 – $30

Sydney’s champions of adventurous new music, Ensemble Offspring, give a concert in their core trio line-up of flute, clarinet and percussion.

It’s a program of composers shining the limelight on the new – every work on the program was either written specifically for the musicians of Ensemble Offspring or within the last ten years.

All works are by Australian composers, and a common theme is birdsong and the weird and wonderful squeaks, croaks and creaks of Australian native animals. Ensemble Offspring present bite sized, fun and up-beat works to welcome in the dusk.
