Hannah trained at Trinity College of Music and London College of Music and after graduating undertook her first professional engagements as a soloist with The Cambridge Philharmonic Orchestra. She has since appeared in concert halls throughout the UK and Europe with a number of orchestras and chamber music groups. Her recording of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending remains the 14th most downloaded classical track on Amazon and iTunes.
Her concert partnership with pianist Daniel Roberts has won much press and public acclaim as did their debut album L’Esprit Boheme. She has also released a re-evaluated version of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and there are other recording in the pipeline.
With Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery funding she established the Woolmer Philharmonic Orchestra to recreate the Promenade Concerts that took place in Thurrock 1800-1900 and to fund a chamber recording of WW1 composers – Delius, Holst and Vaugan Willaims. In 2016 she was commissioned by The Royal Opera House to develop with them an educational programme for primary school children.
