With finesse, confidence and vitality in wide-ranging repertoire, Hannah's technical vocal proficiency is matched by characterful expression

Hannah is a classically trained, freelance coloratura soprano and vocal tutor based in Cambridge. She performs repertoire of a wide range of styles and languages with finesse, confidence and vitality. Her technical proficiency is equally matched by her extremely characterful expression, commented on by many at her performances, drawing audiences into the emotions and narrative of every piece. Hannah’s linguistic aptitude is highly evident in her performance of foreign-language repertoire. Furthermore, her academic background is evident in the vocal integrity of her performances, which demonstrate a clear sensitivity to the historical background and musical subtleties of the repertoire. In 2018, Hannah graduated with a first class BMus (Hons) Degree, in which she specialized in solo vocal performance. Following this, she has recently graduated from the University of Cambridge with a Masters in Choral Studies, during which she received regular vocal ensemble training by internationally acclaimed octet, Voces8, and regular solo training. Her experience of vocal performance and education includes: membership of the prestigious young artists' programme of The Sixteen, 'Genesis Sixteen'; singing at many BBC Proms as a member of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra Chorus and as a member of the BBC Proms Youth Choir; singing as a first soprano and regular soloist with auditioned chamber choirs at the University of Birmingham in 2015-2018 and in Christ's College Choir (Cambridge) in 2018/19; singing regularly at concerts and events across England as a freelance soprano soloist and ensemble member; operatic roles such as Pamilie in Rameau's 'La naissance d'Osiris' (St John's College, Cambridge) and Pallade, Venere and Virtú in Monteverdi's 'Poppea' (Trinity College, Cambridge); the role of Maria in Handel's 'Brockes Passion (Kings College, Cambridge); soloist on tours to Berlin and Leipzig with Birmingham University Singers and to Singapore with Christ's College Choir. She has performed in venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Usher Hall and St John's Smith Square, and has worked with world-renowned conductors, such as Sir Simon Rattle OM CBE, Simon Halsey CBE, Harry Christophers CBE, Edward Gardner OBE, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, John Wilson, Marin Alsop, and Simon Carrington, amongst others.

Popular Music and Other Genres:
Whether songs from the charts, Disney classics, or traditional folk songs, I am able and happy both to produce a programme which is tailored to your event or to sing a setlist of your choice of songs should you prefer to determine the content.

Christmas Repertoire:
Again, I have a very wide range of Christmas repertoire available, ranging from traditional carols, to contemporary Christian seasonal songs, to popular secular Christmas songs (such as I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas, I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Let it Snow, Last Christmas, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, Feliz Navidad, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas etc.). I am happy to perform sets which include songs from a combination of the aforementioned categories of Christmas songs, or a full set comprising songs from just one of the categories.

Jeremy C, 1 year ago

Hannah is clearly a singer with a major future: she captures an audience with a lucid and focused tone, her expression and phrasing is impeccable, and she sings as if she meant every word.

David C, 1 year ago

Hannah sang a couple of pieces at Christ’s College Choir’s concert in the Steinway Gallery, Singapore, on 6th July this year (2019). Hannah showed her versatility in singing some Gershwin (Summertime) and Ponce (Estrellita), which she performed with her customary confidence and sense of style. She is a high soprano with a beautifully clear sound who performs a wide variety of repertoire. The audience loved it!
