Edinburgh-born Hannah Foster made her concerto debut at sixteen, performing the Nielsen Flute Concerto as part of the Edinburgh Competition Festival. Since then, she has enjoyed giving recitals, playing in chamber groups and playing alongside orchestras.
Hannah won the Abingdon Concerto competition 2014, the British Flute Society School Performer Prize 2014 and was given the opportunity to perform as a Woodwind Category Finalist in BBC Young Musician 2014. In 2016, she won the Edinburgh Competition Festival Concerto Competition and won second prize in the British Flute Society’s Young Artist Competition. She is currently studying flute with Katherine Bryan at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where she was awarded a scholarship place.

She is accompanist for several NYCoS choirs and performed with one of them at the Opening Ceremony of the Scottish Parliament in 2016. Gina spent the summer of 2016 in Italy with Music Academy International, working as repetiteur for Carmen with Washington National Opera conductor Christopher Larkin and director David Gately.
