Georgina Darvidis is one of Melbourne’s most versatile and adventurous young artists. Beginning her musical study exploring theatre and classical vocal technique lead to major roles with The Melbourne Theatre Company and The Victorian Opera Company. After completing a Bachelor in Improvised music at The Victorian College of the Arts, she began to investigate more traditional jazz styles as well as free improvisation and cross disciplinary compositional forms. This lead to overseas study with acclaimed practitioners Shelley Hirsch and Theo Bleckmann in 2013.
Georgina’s recent projects include performing in the premiere original vocal theatre work Permission to Speak presented by Chamber Made, features with the Australian Arts Orchestra, guest artist with the Rubiks Collective and completing a collaborative commission with the Bennetts Lane Big Band and the Penny string quartet.
Georgina is currently developing a piece with Tamara Saulwick and Chamber Made for presentation in 2018 as well as preparing for a performance season in China presenting Between 8 and 9 (CM). In 2017 Georgina was nominated for the Freedman Fellowship, recognising her cross disciplinary vocal practice. Georgina also featured in two projects for the 2017 Melbourne Festival; The Australian Art Orchestra’s Greenroom award winning multimedia piece Diomira and the premier of No New Noise with the Australian Creative Music Ensemble.
