Artist info

Hannah Woolmer

Hannah Woolmer is a highly respected violinist with prolific experience as a recitalist. She often performs with pianist Belinda Jones, and the two perform regularly in top venues throughout London and the South-East. Hannah’s performances have been broadcast on radio, including BBC Radio 3. Hannah also performs regularly as a soloist and has performed The Four Seasons with Baroque Orchestra in London, Southend and Chelmsford and Lark Ascending with the University of Cambridge Philharmonic Orchestra in 2011.

Hannah has performed with artists including Benjamin Grosvenor, Jeanine Thorpe, Kevin Flynn and conductors including Patrick Bailey and Jacques Cohen. She has attended masterclasses and workshops with Bernard Gregor-Smith, John Thwaite, Susanne Stanzeleit and Robin Ireland to name a few. Hannah has a great passion for the tradition of chamber music, and tries to bring aspects of her chamber experience into her solo performance, often resulting in a great rapport with the conductor and an intimacy with the audience very rarely seen in large scale works. Hannah also has a love and a belief in teaching, and The Woolmer Music Group string school is a tribute to her dedication to bringing first-class string education to her native Essex. Hannah performs on a modern Jed Murphy Violin.

Bristol Cathedral is situated in the middle of the city at the bottom of Park Street. It was founded in 1140, but was built gradually over a period of 700 years. The Cathedral hosts numerous events and concerts throughout the year. Many of these are open to the public, and some are free, including the regular lunchtime concerts on Tuesdays.
