About this event

Music in the Regions Present Ensemble Offspring “Songbirds” Tour – Braidwood. Songbirds celebrates the breathtaking virtuosity of Australian birdsong with an array of original Australian chamber works commissioned by Ensemble Offspring.

Be transported into the Australian bush by the familiar sounds of nature’s own musicians, with a little help from Australia’s leading composers. Performed by Lamorna Nightingale (flutes), Jason Noble (clarinets) and Claire Edwardes (percussion), Songbirds captures the magical bird calls of the red centre, virtuosic avian displays and Indigenous musical perspectives on these beguiling creatures of the sky.

Ensemble Offspring is Australia’s leading new music group. Under the leadership of Claire Edwardes OAM, they are Australia’s foremost champion of contemporary classical music. The group has commissioned and premiered over 350 new works and has toured First Nations music and new commissions worldwide. Their dedication to excellence and amplifying underrepresented voices has earned them a Myer Award, multiple APRA Art Music Awards and two ARIA nominations.

Music in the Regions (MitR) is an independent touring organisation established in 2022 to connect classical musicians with regional audiences and facilitate transformative musical experiences across New South Wales. These musicians will perform in regions not traditionally visited, reinvigorating regional venues into concert venues, and fostering a vibrant, world-class New South Wales classical music industry. MitR is supported by the NSW Government via Create NSW, and through private philanthropy.
