Melbourne-based Australian violist Phoebe Green is active in her artistic practice as a performer, improvisor, researcher, curator, and advocate. In a vocation where the close dialogue with composers is intrinsic to a meaningful performance outcome, Phoebe has commissioned numerous works for viola and other instruments from composers including David Chisholm, Helen Gifford, Wally Gunn, Michael Kieren Harvey, Lisa Illean, Alistair Noble, and James Rushford. Phoebe performs in solo, chamber and orchestral contexts, and has a duo with percussionist Leah Scholes. In 2014 Phoebe attended the 47th International Summer Course for New Music in Darmstadt, Germany, and was awarded the Stipendienpreis for Interpretation. In 2018 Phoebe completed a Doctor of Musical Arts at Griffith University.
