MusiciansGeorgia White

Georgia White is a clarinettist based in Naarm/Melbourne. In 2024 she commences her second year of studies at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) under the tutelage of David Thomas. Originally from the Bellarine Peninsula, Georgia has called this city home since moving in 2019 to study with David Griffiths at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, completing her honours degree in performance in 2023.

During her undergraduate degree, Georgia was a recipient of the Lady Turner Exhibitions in Music Scholarship, a Principal's Scholarship, and the Melbourne University Artist Portfolio Prize. After being a finalist in 2021, Georgia was awarded Runner-Up at the University’s Concerto Aria Competition in 2022, performing the Nielsen Clarinet Concerto - which she is most looking forward to performing with the University’s Symphony Orchestra in April 2024. In her first year at ANAM, she was awarded the Brett Dean Prize for the Best Performance of an Australian work in a recital.

Since 2020, Georgia has participated in AYO orchestral programs and performed regularly with The University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra – highlights including Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony, Mahler 2, and Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances. In 2022, Georgia worked as a casual musician with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria.

In both chamber and solo settings, Georgia is interested in playing and promoting music written for the clarinet by women, in 2022 recording Alice Mary Smith’s Andante through the University Portfolio Prize and performing Ruth Gipps’ luscious ‘Rhapsody in Eb’ at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music Showcase Concert. Georgia delights in opportunities to further explore this passion at ANAM, in her first-year recital programming works by Gipps and Anne Cawrse.

Aside from all things music, Georgia occupies her time with drinking plenty of coffee, running local trails and eating out a little too often.
