Hannah Ely

Hannah read Music as an undergraduate at the University of Manchester before studying piano as a postgraduate at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Hannah is a founding member, soprano and manager of the Fieri Consort. She sings with a range of ensembles including The Sixteen, Britten Sinfonia Voices, Siglo de Oro, Musica Secreta and Erebus Ensemble. Although living in London and studying voice with Yvonne Kenny and Gary Coward, Hannah spends part of her time in Basel, Switzerland on the Advanced Vocal Ensemble Studies with Anthony Rooley and Evelyn Tubb.

As a soloist, Hannah specialises in 16th-18th century solo and consort singing and made her opera debut at the Brighton Early Music Festival in 2015 as Sirena in ‘La Liberazione di Ruggiero’ by Francesca Caccini, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3. She is looking forward to appearing as a soloist again in the same festival in November 2017, performing Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. She has also featured as 2nd witch in Purcell’s ‘Dido & Aeneas’ with the Erebus Ensemble. When she’s not singing, Hannah enjoys bouldering with Lucy and some other Fieri members, though she wishes she was as good!
