Hello! I am a freelance choral conductor and singer in London. I conduct choirs including Kensington Singers, Victoria Park Singers, & in December 2016 some of us had the privilege of performing at the Royal Variety show as part of a choir for Gary Barlow, singing the song Dare from his new musical Girls, based on the inspiring story of the Calendar Girls.
I also coach the ITV choir, & work with Music in Offices conducting Rothschild, and Engine office choirs as well as fixing choirs for recording projects. I write and record using my performance name of Hannah Magenta. In November 2016 I performed on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing as part of a choir backing Gary Barlow.
In 2015 the BBC named me as one of the inaugural BBC Music Day Unsung Hero Award for launching the community choir Victoria Park Singers in Hackney (described by BBC Head of Music James Stirling as ‘stunning’).
You can listen to the BBC Radio 2 Steve Wright piece about the award here. There is also a short film featuring my work with Victoria Park Singers on the BBC website here. To hear all the radio interviews click here. Thanks to the BBC for a brilliant experience and I’m so proud of my choirs!
Check out the Music Page for details of my original material which includes pop, electronica and country.
Absolutely on the money for me.
