Known as an accomplished pianist and collaborative artist, Stacie Haneline brings a remarkable variety of repertoire and experience in all musical disciplines to her performances. She appears frequently in the Summer Concert Series of the Omaha Chamber Music Society, in addition to having been its executive director since 2008. As a member of I, the Siren, the piano/oboe/vocal faculty trio in residence at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, she has played music that ranges from traditional classics to 20th– and 21st–century composers, including Leonard Bernstein, Osvaldo Golijov, and Peter Lieberson. In the summer of 2014, I, the Siren was in residence at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute in New Hampshire. Stacie has worked with a broad range of artists and ensembles in a correspondingly broad range of repertoire for more than 20 years. In chamber music settings, for example, her performances encompass classical masterworks along with contemporary compositions by George Crumb, John Adams, Jennifer Higdon, and Lou Harrison; additionally, she collaborates with larger ensembles, such as opera, choral, and orchestral companies. A member of the piano faculty at UNO, she teaches piano and a performance-based curriculum on the art of collaboration. She is the pianist for the music department, accompanying fellow faculty members and visiting artists. She continues to work with the Omaha Symphony, Opera Omaha, and national Broadway touring companies (they have included Wicked, The Book of Mormon, and Young Frankenstein) and has an active piano studio for musicians of all ages. Stacie completed her bachelor degree in piano performance at Converse College (Spartanburg, South Carolina); earned her master degree from the Manhattan School of Music; and received teacher certification in secondary education at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. In her leisure time Stacie enjoys traveling with her family—especially when it involves scuba diving.
