Hannah plays regularly in two Duos – Amicelli Duo and Toccata.


Amicelli Duo

Amicelli Duo

Amicelli Duo is a vibrant duo of two professional cellists Rachel Threlfall and Hannah Monkhouse. They have years of experience in providing suitable music for a variety of occasions, such as weddings, corporate functions and recitals. Amicelli have performed extensively throughout the U.K. at venues including Tower Bridge Walkways, City Hall, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The National Gallery and major London hotels including The Mandarin and The Ritz.

Amicelli are passionate about their unusual duo combination of two cellos. The Cello is one of the most versatile instruments, with its extensive register and suitability for various musical styles. The Duo offers an original alternative to a String Quartet.

Amicelli have a wide range of repertoire, from light Classical to Folk arrangements, Tangos and Show tunes. You can choose your favourite pieces, or let us suggest a suitable programme for your event.
