Hannah has been advising and assisting music leaders on their Concert Tours for 14 years. She plays the flute and studied music at Durham University. She was a member of the Blackheath Halls orchestra for 10 years and currently plays for the Brighton & Hove Arts Orchestra, as well as a woodwind chamber ensemble. She also has a keen interest in contemporary dance. Hannah has travelled extensively, visiting 33 countries. Her favourite destinations have been Bosnia, New Mexico, Lombok, the Perhentian Islands in Malaysia, and the Sierra Nevada in California.

About her role, Hannah says: “I love working with Heads of Music, conductors and arts leaders from a wide variety of ensembles, towards refining a Concert Tour that is perfect for their group. Whether it’s the first or the fifteenth trip, taking an ensemble to perform in Europe is an incredibly exciting project. I hugely enjoy combining efforts with my clients to see all our hard work paying off towards a superb tour. I’m immensely proud when I read yet another positive feedback form and when I hear that ensemble members have returned to rehearsals enthused and motivated by their music-making abroad. Club Europe work for months, often years,  on these tours and I am proud to recognise that we played a part in inspiring musicians from all walks of life.”

Hannah introduced all three of the concert department's social media platforms and enjoys updating their followers on what the team gets upto. She recently launched a special one-off charitable project called ‘Proud to Perform’. This fully subsidised award enabled one underprivileged youth ensemble to perform in Paris. In her spare time, Hannah volunteers for a Brighton-based music charity which specialises in offering community-based participatory music sessions for mental health, for older people, for those with learning disabilities and for people living with dementia and their carers.
