Pauline Haas

Born in 1992, Pauline Haas began her musical studies at age eight at the Regional Conservatory of Strasbourg. Three years later, she gave her first recital. In 2007, she was admitted early to the Paris Conservatory, receiving her Master’s with honours four years later. A winner of several international prizes, she notably obtained First Prize in the Concours international Lily Laskine, junior category, at age thirteen, as well as a prize for the best performance of the competition’s chosen contemporary piece – to this day, she remains the only French harpist to have received this honour. The same year, she gave her first concert as a soloist with orchestra, conducting herself from the stand. In 2012, she was named a ‘Révélation soliste Instrumental’ at the Victoires de la Musique Classique. In 2017, she created À Cœurs Battants, a festival with a humanitarian cause and eclectic programming.
