George Parris (b. 2000) is an award-winning composer and pianist based in London. With a particular interest in choral music and theatre, George's work has been praised for its 'evocative and thoughtful writing' [Paul Mealor] and combines his love for early 20th century French impressionist music with influences from both the traditional and contemporary worlds of choral music to create a sound and style of composition with story telling at its heart.

George studied music at the University of Manchester, graduating with a first class degree in 2021 and multiple awards including the Proctor-Gregg prize for film music composition.

George is currently enrolled at the Royal Academy of Music and studies composition with Gary Carpenter.

As a composer, George has had his works performed at pretigeous festivals such as JAM on the Marsh, The Leeds Lieder Festival and Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival and by groups such as VOCES8, Inchant chamber choir and Ad Solem.  The premier production of George's original musical In and Out of Knowing, written and directed by Nick Bond, opened to two sold-out performances in Mountview's backstage theatre and is currently in development for future productions.

The Shadow, a collaboration with playwright Rebekah King reimagining music's use in theatre premiered at the Royal Academy of Music's 2024 Students Create Festival and was heralded as "entertaining and complex, accessible yet unusual and all in a totally unpretentious way" [Sophie Daneman - theatre director]. 

In addition to his composition work, George works as a pianist and musical director, mostly recently collaborating with The Hurlingham Club on their A Taste of Sondheim production; an original musical revue George helped to devise.
