Ensemble Offspring: Hatched Showcase

Ensemble Offspring presents an evening of fresh ideas, celebrating the next generation of musical thinkers at ACO Pier 2/3.


An evening of fresh ideas and celebrating the next generation of musical thinkers, this showcase is the culmination of the 2023 Hatched Composer Intensive.

The triumphant end of an annual mentorship with Ensemble Offspring and international composers including former Artistic Director Damien Ricketson and Hatched Ambassador Brett Dean, the program unites Australia’s emerging and established musical trailblazers.

Rising composers Isabella Rahme (NSW), Noemi Liba Friedman (VIC), Matthew Laing (VIC), Isabella Gerometta (QLD) and Jessica Lindsay Smith (VIC) will debut new works they have composed under the expert eye of Ensemble Offspring’s virtuoso instrumentalists. Witness the birth of our future cultural leaders as they hatch, launch themselves into the world and let their imaginations fly!
