Hannah is a multifaceted professional cellist who performs in classical, musical theatre, folk and baroque genres, working in London.
Hannah was my desk partner and Section Principal yesterday during a play-through of West Side Story, and I was blown away by the amount of preparation and practice she had put into the work. Our part had just the right amount of bowings and fingers marked in, and she led the section confidently and energetically. A fantastic musician to work with!James McAulay 10 October 2016

Vibellos string trio were absolutely amazing! The song choices were absolutely perfect for what we asked for and everyone enjoyed it, especially the bride and groom who it was a surprise for. I'd highly recommend them!
