George is a first year music undergraduate at York University, studying both as a baritone and violin. Living in Cornwall, he started singing as a chorister at Truro Cathedral, progressing then to a bass choral scholar in his upper sixth year. In 2016 he was awarded a bass choral scholarship at York Minster, singing also in the 24 Choir under Robert Hollingworth and the Willow Consort at the University.

Having worked with names such as Mary King and Alexander Ashworth, his solo work includes principals in Bristol Old Vic’s Coram Boy production, York University’s Paradise Moscow by Shostakovich, and most recently as Collatinus in Britten’s Rape of Lucretia with Aspect Opera. In July 2016 he will be singing Bizet’s Toreador Aria from Carmen in Birmingham Town Hall with Cornwall Youth Symphony Orchestra as part of the Music for Youth Festival. His passion for music continues to prosper, and he is thoroughly enjoying university life with all the opportunities and experiences that it brings.
