“It is always a great pleasure to have Stacie on board with us at the Omaha Symphony. I have been able to engage her as both a rehearsal accompanist with soloists and in the orchestra. In every instance, her musical excellence is overshadowed only by her generous spirit and kindness to her colleagues. In addition, her tireless efforts to keep chamber music alive in the city is a gift not only to my musicians, but to our entire community as well.”

~ Thomas Wilkins
Music Director, Omaha Symphony
Principal Conductor, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra

“Stacie Haneline is a born leader and a creative problem solver with very good instincts and the personal drive to make a difference. … She is a ‘Mover and Shaker’ for the Arts, Education, and Community…a true collaborator who can identify what needs to be done.”

~ Hal France
Former Artistic Director, Opera Omaha

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. As a member of I, the Siren, the piano/oboe/vocal faculty trio in residence at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), she has played music that ranges from traditional classics to 20th and 21st century composers, including Leonard Bernstein, Osvaldo Golijov, and Peter Lieberson. The Trio commissions new works; is actively engaged in outreach and educational programs throughout the country; and has been in residence at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute in New Hampshire. While collaborative artists often specialize in a particular discipline, Stacie Haneline 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; moreover, she also collaborates with larger ensembles, such as opera, choral, and orchestral companies. Her artistry has been recognized internationally, as well; she served as repetiteur at the Sydney Opera House and as pianist and vocal coach at the Australian National University, among other activities. A member of the piano faculty at UNO, she teaches piano and a performance-based curriculum on the art of collaboration. In addition to coordinating the University’s collaborative program, she is the pianist for the music department, accompanying fellow faculty members and visiting artists. In the Omaha community she appears regularly in concerts by the Omaha Chamber Music Society, whose executive director she has been since 2008. 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. A student of Douglas Weeks, Stacie Haneline completed her Bachelor’s degree in piano performance at Converse College (Spartanburg, SC); earned her Master’s from the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with Marc Silverman and Arcady Aranov; and received teacher certification in secondary education at the University of Nebraska Kearney. In her leisure time Ms. Haneline enjoys traveling with her family—especially when it involves scuba diving.
