She performed her first violin concerto at the age of 8 with the Glevum Symphony Orchestra, and has already given many solo recitals. A Major Music & Academic Scholar at the Cheltenham Ladies College, she was originally taught violin by Robert Bishop of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. She is now under the tuition of the internationally acclaimed soloist Tasmin Little OBE.
By the age of nine Hannah had already passed all of the eight ABRSM Violin exams with distinction, along with five piano exams, and five singing, also with distinctions. A former Leader of the ‘National Children’s Orchestra’, she was a three times recipient of their prestigious ‘Leverhulme Scholarship’. In 2015, and again in 2017, Hannah was awarded the ABRSM ‘Sheila Mossman Memorial Prize’ for attaining the highest mark in the country in her Grade 6 and 7 piano exams respectively.
Hannah became the youngest ever winner of the Gloucestershire Young Musician competition in 2017, and shortly after winning this award she won the Strings Finals at the Gregynog Young Musician Competition in Wales, competing alongside category winners & finalists of the BBC Young Musician Competition. She also became the youngest ever winner of the Two Moors International Festival ‘Young Musician Competition’ in 2014.
Hannah is in great demand as a soloist and returned to the Two Moors Festival late in 2015 becoming the events youngest ever soloist, performing in a festival which featured such stars as Sarah Connolly, Imogen Cooper, and Alina Ibragimova. In October 2015 Hannah also performed a Vivaldi Concerto alongside Nicola Benedetti at the Birmingham Symphony Hall when Nicola invited a small ensemble to perform with her, asking Hannah to play the solo part to a capacity audience.

We are delighted to announce our upcoming event

Abstract 7 at Chapel Arts, Cheltenham

Preview - Wednesday 4th July, 6.30pm to 8pm. The exhibition will run from the 4th to the 28th July 2018.

This The Abstract 7 are a group of five painters one potter and one sculptor; all of whom favour the modernist’s approach and a philosophy of abstraction that echoes the appreciation of the New York abstract expressionists.

For this group abstraction is a means of enlightenment, a kind of magic that reveals images of inner feelings beyond thought or mind. The work is not to be reasoned with or necessarily understood. It is to be experienced and meditated upon.

We are delighted to be hosting a series of concerts and composer academies as part of Cheltenham Music Festival, which runs from 30 June – 15 July. For availability and booking, contact the box office 01242 850270

This is the last of our Spring/Summer shows, Chapel Arts will be closed for August but will re-open for the Autumn/Winter shows on 5th September, where we will have exhibitions from Jane Lampard & Michael Long, The Gloucestershire Print Co-operative and Cheltenham artist Robert Goldsmith.

4th to the 28th July 2018
