Born in 1996 in Gloucestershire, Hatty is a violinist currently studying on the Artist Masters Course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she studies with Stephanie Gonley, Krysia Osostowicz and Pavlo Beznosiuk (baroque violin). She recently completed her undergraduate degree with So-Ock Kim at the Royal Academy of Music and was the recipient of the prestigious J&A Beare Bow prize which is given annually to the most promising graduating student. During her time at the Academy, Hatty was also awarded the John Waterhouse, Amadeus, Sir John Barbirolli and Wolfe Wolfinsohn Prizes.
Hatty has performed extensively in the UK in venues including Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, St James’ Piccadilly, Regent Hall and the Barbican Centre, as well as throughout Hong Kong and Japan. She has participated in masterclasses with James Ehnes, Levon Chilingirian, Guy Johnston, the Doric, Fine Arts and Escher quartets, and most recently with Andras Keller at International Musicians Seminar, Prussia Cove. Alongside solo playing and chamber music, Hatty is a keen orchestral player and has played with orchestras such as the Philharmonia, London Sinfonietta, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the London Symphony Orchestra and is a participant on the OAE Experience Scheme and the LSO String Experience. She is also currently on trial with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
Hatty is incredibly grateful for the generous support of the John Welch Scholarship, the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, the Stephen Bell Charitable Trust, The Lumbs Educational Trust, The Kathleen Trust and the Albert Cooper Musical Trust. She plays on a Baldantoni Violin c.1810, very generously on loan from the Harrison Frank Family Foundation.
