Hanne Becker

Hanné Becker is an organist and soprano with a particular passion for sacred music. Hanné commenced her organ studies with John Tuttle in Toronto. She graduated in 2014 from the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto in the Bachelor of Music (Organ Performance) program with Honors. At present she is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Organ Performance specializing in Early Music with Wolfgang Zerer at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland. 

Besides being an organist, Hanné also sang for 7 years in the CBC Award-winning Evensong choir of St. Thomas’s Anglican Church, Toronto, under leadership of John Tuttle. While at U of T, she also sang with the MacMillan Singers under the direction of Hilary Apfelstadt. With MacMillan Singers & the Elmer Iseler Singers she sang at the 2012 Podium Chorale in Ottawa, where they jointly performed works by renowned Canadian composer Ruth Watson-Henderson. 

Organ master classes in Canada included Hans-Ola Ericsson (McGill) and Peter Williams in 2013 and also Canadian virtuoso Ken Cowan in 2014.

Hanné is also active as a continuo player. She made her debut in 2011 playing in the Passion Cantata Der Sterbende Heiland by 18th century composer Johann Wilhelm Hertel. Hanné got to study further in 2013 at Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute, studying harpsichord with Charlotte Nediger. In Switzerland at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, Hanné intensified her studies in Generalbass and Continuo. In August 2015 she also participated in the Forum Alte Musik Masterclasses for Chamber Music in Voralberg, Austria, where she played both harpsichord and organ in a concert broadcast on the Austrian Radio. 

Hanné is also a composer, and having been a finalist in the Great Canadian Hymn Competition II in 2013, continued to work in Basel deciding to specialize in Renaissance counterpoint. Her early 16th Century style organ piece Uß tiefer Not schrey ich zue Dir had its world premiere in the concert at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis during the Klangwelt Renaissance III project week in 2016, where an array of wonderful music from early 16th Century was performed.
