realtime tv: claire edwardes & damien ricketson, ensemble offspring

Ensemble Offspring is a new music group performing works ranging from the 20th century masters to new commissions. They formed 15 years ago, originally under the name Spring Ensemble, the resident company for Roger Woodward’s Sydney Spring Festival. The group is led by percussionist Claire Edwardes and composer Damien Ricketson and has a core of regular musicians presenting an ambitious and eclectic program each year often involving intriguing collaborations.

Ensemble Offspring are currently in the middle of a regional tour of NSW with their Music to Infinity program. See website for details: http://ensembleoffspring.com/
