Who is she?

Lisa Berg, born in 1978 in Echternach, received her first music lessons at the age of six and started to learn the flute at the Maastricht Conservatory at the age of 13. She also started cello lessons at the same time.

From the age of 16, the young enthusiast played in rock and pop bands, and later also in the crossover and jazz directions. She also performs simultaneously in several ensembles and has a temporary engagement with the Luxembourg Sinfonietta and the Kammermusek Veräin Lëtzebuerg.

Since 2001, Lisa Berg has been a music teacher at the Réidener Museksschoul. As a soloist, orchestral musician and chamber musician she remains involved in a wide variety of, often non-classical, formations. Lisa participated in about thirty albums and soundtracks. The young woman then fell ill with cancer, which was considered cured following a marrow transplant. During this difficult period, Lisa, who is very combative, composed the piece Hope for the Cancer Foundation, in 2014 at the Relay for Life (the video Hope is recorded in Lisa Berg's hospital room). She released a solo album White in 2015 recorded at Real World Studios by Peter Gabriel. In July 2016, the artist made her return to the stage and performed at various national and international festivals.

In the summer of 2017, Lisa had to resume her battle with illness. Lisa Berg succumbed to leukaemia on 22 December 2017 at the Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg.
