Gina Bordini


Gina Bordini is an American classically trained violinist and songwriter residing in Bergen, Norway. Growing up in northern Wisconsin, Gina took great interest to the violin after discovering one hidden in a closet. She started playing at age five and later continued her studies at Lawrence University in Wisconsin and Northwestern University in Chicago before moving to Oslo, Norway to study at the Norwegian Academy of Music.

She is an active orchestral, studio and chamber musician, and regularly performs with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra and Arctic Philharmonic among others. In her spare time she enjoys composing and writing songs. Her additional compositions and recordings resulted in a Primetime Emmy Award for music on the PBS American Masters documentary, “John Muir in the New World,” 2011.

Additionally she often records for films, TV and radio including previous performances on The Voice for TV2 Norge, The Stream TV2, Chicago’s WFMT “Live from Studio One,” and Wisconsin Public Radio. During her studies in Oslo in 2016 Gina was awarded a violin by Joseph Curtin on generous loan from Dextra Musica through Sparebankstiftelsen DNB in Norway.
