Hannah Rose Innes was born in Winchester, and started playing the cello at the age of five. She began studying with Robert Cohen in 2008, before joining the Purcell School in September of that year. During her time at the Purcell School, Hannah performed Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations with the school symphony orchestra and gave a solo recital at St Martin in the Fields, as well as several chamber music recitals at the Wigmore Hall. In 2009 she gave a performance of the Elgar Cello Concerto with the Aylesbury Symphony Orchestra, and a year later performed the Dvorak Cello Concerto with the Watford Symphony Orchestra. In 2010 Hannah was awarded the Rose Roitman award of a full scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Robert Cohen, where she was awarded a number of prizes, including the Harry Isaacs Piano Trio Prize, Douglas Cameron and the Montefiore prize, as well as playing in regular concerts with the Symphony and Concert orchestras. In 2013, Hannah was awarded the Waddell Memorial Prize in Edinburgh. She is a founding member of the award winning Delmege quartet, who have performed at venues across the UK, as well as in Norway, France, and at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival. Since graduating from the RAM in 2014, Hannah has played regularly with Sinfonia Cymru, and has recently performed Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations with the Winchester Symphony Orchestra.

In September this year, Hannah is looking forward to becoming a member of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Having begun her musical life in Hampshire, playing with the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra and performing regularly in and around Winchester as a soloist and chamber musician, it is a great joy for Hannah to return to her home town to perform in Winchester Cathedral.
