Barbara Haggh-Huglo was born in Nebraska to German immigrants. Her father, Dr. Raymond Haggh was a distinguished music educator and served as Director of the School of Music at the University of Nebraska from 1977–83. Because of her parents’ background, Barbara Haggh-Huglo was raised with a strong affinity for languages, learning German in the household and studying French at school. She then went on to receive her B. A. in German from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, and, from the University of Illinois at Urbana, her B. A. in Music, M. M. in Musicology, and Ph.D. in Musicology. Haggh-Huglo has conducted research at many major libraries across the globe, and particularly those of Europe and North America. Haggh-Huglo’s involvement with musicological societies is equally extensive; along with attending and presenting at numerous international conferences, she served as Vice-President, Program Chair, and Directorium of the International Musicological Society, and Chair of their study group “Cantus Planus.” Haggh-Huglo has over 100 publications throughout an international range of scholarly journals, and is also currently serving on the editorial boards of two book series, four periodicals, and three online musicological projects. As a faculty member of the University of Maryland’s Musicology department, Haggh-Huglo has instructed seminars focusing on early music notation, music in the medieval and Renaissance city, composers of the medieval and Renaissance, and the various musical settings of the Mass spanning 600 years.
