THREE AND UNDER

A NEW AND UNIQUE MUSICAL EXPERIENCE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

Three and Under is a program of intriguing miniatures for flute, clarinet and percussion showcasing our members as theatrical soloists and chamber music gurus. They perform works by Damian Barbeler, Oscar Bettison, Jukka Tiensuu and Melody Eötvös. In Brisbane the group teams up with newcomers ‘Kupka’s Piano’.

In 2011, Ensemble Offspring was nominated in nine categories at the APRA Art Music Awards. Other recent highlights include a tour to China, a successful European Tour and sold out Sydney Festival performances in both 2013 and 2014.

This engaging show features an array of surprising musical gems written within our lifetime, including Matthew Shlomowitz’s popular Letter Piece which combines physical actions with text and sounds in what has been described as arty farty charades and Counting Duet by Tom Johnson which relies on audience participation!

Bring the kids for an evening to remember!
