About the Show

Tickle your ears and imagination

Inspired by Australian bush classics such as The Magic Pudding, Blinky Bill and The Muddleheaded Wombat, Ensemble Offspring, Sydney’s favourite musical mavericks, take toddlers and their families on a journey through the wonderment of experiencing chamber music for the first time. Featuring old-fashioned colonial folk tunes, sounds of the Australian bush, instrumental demonstrations, hands-on percussion fun and music by much loved Australian composers Ann Boyd, Ross Edwards, Percy Grainger, Elena Kats-Chernin and Peter Sculthorpe, Bilby’s Bluegum Melodies is the perfect introduction for your little ones to the vast sonic possibilities of piano, woodwinds and percussion, in an intimate and informal music show. Come and hear a marimba, bass clarinet and water phone for the first time and get your ears and imaginations tickled by the members of Ensemble Offspring.

“What a clever way to expose the young to the delights of such music…it succeeded in spades.” CityNews Canberra
