Born and raised in Glenesk in the North East of Scotland, Georgina recently graduated with a first class degree in music from The University of Edinburgh. Aged seven she started violin lessons with a strong passion to perform, having since played with orchestras across Scotland including NYOS, Kellie Consort and the newly founded Nevis Ensemble. It was during her university studies under the tutelage of Dr Gareth Williams and Pippa Murphy that she began to explore her own compositional voice. In her final year, she was one of a small cohort of composers given the opportunity to write a piece for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, which was premiered at the 2019 ECA Degree Show. Georgina plans to go on to further study at postgraduate level where she can continue to combine her love of performance and composition.
