Fieri

Hannah is a founding member, soprano and manager of the Fieri Consort and has recently been selected to participate in ‘Female Founders Accerator’ - a development scheme for female entrepeneurs 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 will be returning 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. 


Strozzi

Together with fellow Fieri soprano Lucy Cox, Hannah is exploring the life and work of Barbara Strozzi through a series of concerts with lutenist/theorbist Toby Carr and harpist Aileen Henry. Why was she portrayed as a courtesan and was she perceived by her peers as the successful independent female composer that she was? First performance in Dorset 8th October.
