Serendipity - the gift of making fortunate discoveries by accident. That was how Hannah came to play the bassoon, it being one of the only two instruments left available in the high school music store room. Immediately taking to the bassoon, Hannah found that there were many opportunities to play in orchestras. These included a performance of Carmina Burana and a place in the Grant Maintained Schools National Orchestra (now the English Schools Orchestra) where they played Rimsky Korsakov's Scheherazade and some new music that called for solo percussion parts, performed by Evelyn Glennie. During her undergraduate course at Birmingham Conservatoire, she performed the European Premiere of Eric Ewazens bassoon concerto with the wind ensemble under the baton of Guy Woolfenden. She then went on to complete her Masters Degree at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London.
Currently she works as a teacher of reed instruments and also plays as part of a duo called Serendipity.
