Georgie Darvidis is one of Melbourne’s most versatile and adventurous young artists. Early musical study exploring theatre and classical vocal technique led to major roles with The Melbourne Theatre Company and The Victorian Opera Company. After completing a Bachelor of 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 led to overseas study with acclaimed practitioners Shelley Hirsch and Theo Bleckmann in 2013.
Georgie has performed in acclaimed Chamber Made productions Permission to Speak, Between 8 and 9and Diaspora. She has worked extensively with the Australian Art Orchestra, including tours to London, Poland and JazzFest Berlin, as well as featuring as a guest artist with the Rubiks Collective, the Australian Contemporary Music Ensemble and the Bennetts Lane Big Band. In 2017 Georgie was nominated for the Freedman Jazz Fellowship, recognising her interdisciplinary vocal practice.
