Hannah Morgan, studied with Melanie Ragge at the Royal Academy of Music and graduated in 2013 with First Class Honours.  Her post-graduate studies included three years in Germany where, as a member of the Karajan Academy, she studied with Jonathan Kelly and performed regularly with the Berlin Philharmonic.  Her work with the orchestra included tours, recordings, and live television and cinema broadcasts.

Hannah is the recipient of numerous prizes, including the Hattori Foundation Senior Award, Leila Bull Oboe Prize and 1st Prize at the Third International Barbirolli Competition.  As a selected musician for the Tillett Trust Young Artists’ Platform and Countess of Munster Recital Scheme, she regularly gives recitals and concerto performances across the UK.  She looks forward to her debut recital as part of the Monday Platform scheme supported by the Tillett Trust at Wigmore Hall on 21 November 2016. Hannah is grateful for the support she has received from the Tillett Trust, Countess of Munster Musical Trust and DAAD, the German Academic Exchange Service.

Hannah has performed chamber music at venues throughout Europe.  She recently toured Italy giving oboe quartet concerts as part of Festival Opera Barga and has performed in a Borletti-Buitoni Masterclass in London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall. She is enthusiastic about music education, recently writing and directing five children’s concerts for the Berlin Philharmonic.  She played Principal Oboe in the premiere of Jonathan Dove’s Opera, Monster in the Maze, and also alongside the Soma Children’s Orchestra for a project organised by El Sistema Japan.  She has been a tutor for the National Youth Wind Ensemble of Great Britain and enjoys teaching reed-making at The Purcell School.  Hannah regularly runs schools’ workshops and recently accepted an Open Academy Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music for the 2016-17 season.

Daniel also studied at the Royal Academy of Music where he won prizes for chamber music and his extensive concerto repertoire has led to many concerto performances in the UK and around Europe including the Royal Festival Hall. 

Since appearing in the televised finals of BBC Young Musician of the Year 1996 as a soloist, Daniel has regularly accompanied contestants in that competition. He was also a prize-winner in the Haverhill Sinfonia Soloist competition and subsequently won their Best Accompanist’s Prize. He has been staff accompanist at both the Royal College of Music and Royal Academy of Music Junior Departments and at the Purcell School, leading to concerts for Prince Charles at Wigmore Hall and at the Royal Albert Hall. He is an official accompanist for the Countess of Munster Trust auditions and the Tunbridge Wells International Young Concert Artists competition. 

Daniel accompanies on many summer music courses and has given recitals all over the world. He performs regularly on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and for BBC Radio Ulster and has recorded a number of CDs.
