Georg Valdemar Høeberg ( 27 December 1872 in Copenhagen – 3 August 1950 in Vedbaek ) was a Danish violinist, conductor and composer. He was the brother of the opera singer Albert Høeberg and cellist Ernst Høeberg and grandson of Hans Christian Lumbye.

Already in 1888 he became a student at the Music Academy including George Ditleff Bondesen, Gade and Valdemar Tofte as teachers. He had violin as the main instrument and studied also piano and composition.

After further violin studies in Berlin he got a job as a violinist in the Royal Chapel from 1897 - 1901. At the same time he began composing, and in 1899 he received the Anckerske Scholarship. From 1900 he was additionally violin teacher at the Conservatory until 1914 when he became conductor of the Royal chapel as a replacement for Frederik Rung. The post he had until 1930. In the years from 1910 - 1914 he had been head of the concerts in Danish Concert Association and there had proven his abilities as a conductor.

His musical output was small and fell either before or after his conductorship.
