Sizzle 2018

  • Petersham Bowling Club 77 Brighton Street Petersham, NSW, 2049 Australia (map)

From art music to pop music and everything in between, Sizzle returns to the Petersham Bowling Club for another year of free, family-friendly aural delights.

2018 features Ensemble Offspring’s virtuosic instrumentalists alongside two driving forces in Sydney’s music world; Satsuki Odamura and her Koto Ensemble and Alice Chance with her new work for you, the audience, entitled The Audience Choir.

David Lang’s Cheating, Lying, Stealing whirls through the club alongside the Australian premiere of Erik Griswold’s Action Music 2, and we once again hear from 2017 Hatched Academy composer Ciaran Frame with his catchy quartet Listeners as Spectators.

Our brand new Hatched Associate Artist, Georgina Oakes joins us for the first time on clarinet and Liz Jigalin returns with another interactive musical experience featuring her Sound Parcels downstairs – a one on one sonic adventure where you get to take home your own little sound parcel made live by Liz.

Bring along the family and revel in the fun and raucous variety show that is Ensemble Offspring’s annual Sizzle.
