Nina Haug is a young pianist and conductor from Switzerland. Growing up in a musical family and assisting at the local concert series, she quickly became enamoured with the world of music. 

 

Her piano studies eventually took her to the University of Music Wuerzburg. There she developed a special love for German Lied, studying with Gerold Huber, going on to performing Lied concerts throughout Germany and Switzerland. She has also performed in chanson evenings with actors and has even sung and acted herself from the piano. 

 

From an early age, Nina sang in one of the best youth choirs in Switzerland, which eventually hired her as its repetiteur, coach, and finally co-director. Discovering a great love for conducting, while in Wuerzburg, she joined the conducting class of Ari Rasilainen, conducting professional orchestras around Germany and Finland. Conducting from the keyboard, she has performed Mozart two concerti with the St. Michel Strings in Finland.

 

Following her time in Wuerzburg, Nina spent two years in Helsinki studying piano at the Sibelius Academy. She was continuing her masters in New York City but the pandemic brought her back to Finland where she surrently is studying with Matti Raekallio and expected to graduate in 2021.
