Soprano, Hannah Pinhorn, is a current doctoral student at Western’s Don Wright Faculty of Music. Her love of singing and classical music has been life-long. As she began studying music at the university level, she developed a passion for classical vocal repertoire, particularly French Mélodie and American Art Song, which has been the driving force behind her continued musical and academic pursuits.

Hannah holds a Bachelor of Music from Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and both a Master of Music and Master of Library Information Sciences from Western University in London, Ontario. At Memorial, she played the role of Fiordiligi (Cosi fan tutte) in scenes with the opera workshop program, and covered roles such as Sandrina (Un avvertimento ai gelosi), First Lady (Die Zauberflöte), and Vitellia (La clemenza di Tito). In 2017, Hannah was the featured singer in Memorial University's Welcome Ceremony and was a performer in Memorial University's President's Golden Awards Celebration. At Western, she played the role of Serpetta in the 2019 production of Mozart’s La finta giardiniera and in 2021 she participated in Western’s Opera Gala performing scenes from Le nozze di Figaro and Lucia di Lammermoor.

Throughout her time in academia, Hannah has been the recipient of several scholarships; most notably, the London Opera Guild Scholarship in 2020 and the Lily F. W. Chiu Scholarship in 2021, which is awarded to the entering MLIS student with the highest academic standing. She is also very grateful to have received a Western Graduate Research Scholarship for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Currently, Hannah serves as a graduate student representative on Western’s SNATS (Student-National Association of Teachers of Singing) chapter. When she is not singing, writing, or studying, Hannah can be found cross stitching, baking, listening to ABBA, or spending time with her cat, Mister.
