Georgia Cooke (1994) is a British flautist and composer, living and working in London, UK. She is currently studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with Anna Noakes, and previously at Brunel University with Colin Riley, Peter Weigold, Sarah Nichols and John Croft, achieving a first class honours degree in music and the Sheridan Award for Music Performance.
Georgia specialises in contemporary classical and free improvisation performance. Her current projects include playing with Ensemble Entropy alongside Matt London, performing original works based on graphic scores and free improvisation; presenting lesser known contemporary works with flexible ensemble; Crosscontemporary Project; singing soulful jazz standards with her trio Bouffant; and premiering her own compositions. When alone, she performs solo flute music, specialising in living composers such as Dave Heath and Robert Aitken.
Georgia composes in a number of styles, from contemporary minimalism, to 21st century romanticism, with the main aim of creating something enjoyable and accessible to the audience. Her most recent composition, Hebe, was premiered in January 2017 at The Old Royal Naval College Chapel by Anna Noakes, Freyr Sigurjónsson, Gabriella Dall’Olio and Leo Nicholson. Current projects include expanding the repertoire for flute choir, working closely with Trinity Laban flute choir.
Georgia continues to play in a number of well-known UK venues including The Royal Festival Hall and Snape Maltings.
