Hannah was selected as a soprano on the Handel House Talent young artist scheme 2018-19, through which she performed solo recitals in the historic venue. She is a member of Dame Emma Kirkby’s ensemble Dowland Works, with whom she made her Wigmore Hall debut as part of Dame Emma’s birthday celebration.
Hannah has been researching and performing the life and music of Barbara Strozzi over the last few years and, with the Fieri Consort, has launched a new project in collaboration with Wise Child Theatre of a play with music which delves into the dramatic and colourful world of 17th-century Venice. The ensemble have also recorded an album of solos and duets by Strozzi released on their own label Fieri Records available here.
