Hannah Kendall (2000s)

BBC radio broadcasts, a Woman of the Future Award and a one-man chamber opera are just a few examples of the achievements gained by composer Hannah Kendall, a First Class honours Music graduate from the University.

After graduating from Exeter, Hannah went on to have her music recognised by nationally renowned groups such as London Philharmonic Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and BBC Singers. Her work has been performed around the country and played on BBC Radio broadcasts. In March 2015, Hannah’s work was featured on BBC Radio 3’s Composer of the Week.

Hannah is also one of the Directors at London Music Masters, a charity that aims to enable opportunity, diversity and excellence in classical music.

Her latest project, a one-person chamber opera titled 'The Knife of Dawn', draws inspiration from Martin Carter, a Guyanese political activist and poet, in his prison cell towards the end of a month-long hunger strike in 1953.
