Biography:

Hannah Gibson

Hannah was born in Scotland in 1991. From an early age she had an interest in music and took piano lessons with Judith Wilkes, followed by the organ with Stuart Muir at St Paul’s Cathedral, Dundee.

In 2009, she joined Royal Birmingham Conservatoire's prestigious organ department on a scholarship. During her time there she won the Birmingham Organists’ Association Leonard Gibbons Fund Competition and competed in the Northern Ireland International Competition in 2011. The same year, she was awarded a place to study at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna, studying principally with Pier Damiano Peretti.

Hannah graduated in June 2013, having studied under Henry Fairs and Daniel Moult for the duration of her degree. She has since performed all over the UK at venues including the Caird Hall; Westminster Central Hall; St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square; Palmerston Place, Edinburgh, and many of the cathedrals and abbeys as well as abroad in Italy and Australia.

In September 2014, she returned to Royal Birmingham Conservatoire on a scholarship and completed the Master of Music degree with Distinction. From September 2015-17, Hannah was appointed the College Organist of Mount St Mary’s College, Sheffield, a post combined with teaching the organ, academic music and assisting in the running of the music department. She is now based in Worcestershire, where she regularly teaches and performs.
