FIERI CONSORT

Hannah is a founding member, soprano and manager of the Fieri Consort. In 2017 she was selected to participate in the ‘Female Founders Accelerator’ - a development scheme for female entrepreneurs with Hatch Enterprises. Performing without a conductor, Fieri presents innovative and engaging programmes, and specialises in the rich and varied tradition of 16th and 17th-century Italian repertoire. Performing a cappella, accompanied by early instruments, with guests and even, memorably, with members of their audiences, Fieri’s interpretations are always ingenious and informed by the collective experience and knowledge of the group.

In 2014, The Brighton Early Music Festival selected the Fieri Consort to participate in their prestigious Young Artist’s Programme, BREMF Live!, and in the same year, the group embarked on its first international tour to Australia, where they returned in 2017. Fieri has featured on BBC Radio 3 several times, performing in their lunchtime concert series and live on ‘In Tune’ and ‘The Choir’. Fieri were delighted to be awarded the Cambridge Prize at the prestigious York Early Music Festival in 2017. Fieri has released three albums, its debut Tears of a Lover, was selected as BBC Music Magazine’s album choice of the month. Their fourth disc will be released in collaboration with the Chelys consort of viols in 2019. 

Over the last few years Hannah has been researching the life and music of Barbara Strozzi. This has culminated in developing a play with music with Wild Child Theatre which will have its first performance on the 1st November as part of Brighton Early Music Festival. Fieri have also recorded an album of her music, which was released in September 2019.
