Double Your Impact: Your donation matched by our Board

Thanks to loyal supporters like you, we are able to create and sustain a deep commitment to important new programs for emerging composers and performers in Australia under the moniker of Hatched Academy. Now in its 4th year, 2018 sees Hatched Academy growing further to include a Composer Summer School (10-14 December, Glebe Town Hall) for 6 composers nationwide and an Open Mic (7 July) performance opportunity for 5 Sydney artists at 107 Projects. This year, funds from our ‘Double Your Impact’ EOFY campaign will go towards supporting these exciting new initiatives.

As you are no doubt aware, here at Ensemble Offspring we have been at it for nearly a quarter of a century, and have a singular track record of success, with an absolute dedication to delivering the best new musical talent. Our enduring commitment to this growing tapestry of new music in Australia places us perfectly to lead the way, raising up the celebrated artists of tomorrow.

When you donate before 30th June our board, along with patron Kim Williams AM, will double your donation! Your contribution will be matched by our board, up to a total of $13,000 (with a combined fundraising goal of $26,000). All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Your donation this year will specifically help us to fund:

  • venue and production costs for Open Mic sessions 
  • mentorship fees to provide artistic program, marketing and audience development support to Open Mic participants 
  • flights and accommodation costs to get our six young composers to Sydney to attend the week long intensive Composer Summer School program
  • travel costs for our guest composer-mentors Matthew Shlomowitz (London), Cathy Milliken (Berlin), Amanda Cole (Sydney) and for our core musicians to workshop participant compositions at the Summer School.

Help Ensemble Offspring to reach their goal of $26,000
