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 a youth choir, which eventually hired her as its repetitor, coach, and conductor. 

 

 

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 piano concertos with different orchestras. Up to this day, leading from the piano has been some of the most meaningful musical experience for her.

Following her time in Wuerzburg, Nina Haug spent two years in Helsinki studying piano with Tuija Hakkila at the Sibelius Academy. After living for one year in New York City where she was continuing her masters in piano, the pandemic brought her back to Finland where she graduated in 2021 from Matti Raekallio’s piano class. 2021-2022 she was working as an accompanist at the Tampere University of Applied Sciences. Additionally she was doing a minor in Wind Conducting at Sibelius Academy. Starting 2022 she will be studying orchestral conducting in Oslo with Ole Kristian Ruud. 

It is Nina’s mission to bring people together to enjoy the energizing power of live music.
