Nicole Wacker was born in 1995 in Zurich, Switzerland. She started her musical education at the age of six taking violin lessons. From 2001 to 2013 she was a part of the children’s choir of the Opera House in Zurich where she gained plenty of experience in classical music. She performed at many well-known operas such as Puccinis „Tosca“, „La bohème“ or Bizets „Carmen“ and had the chance to witness professional singers at work like José Cura, Jonas Kaufmann and Elena Mosuc.

In 2010 she started taking lessons for solo voice as well and since 2013 she is a part of a music scholarship programme of the canton of Aargau which allows her to invest more time and money in her musical education. In 2014 she won the first prize with distinction at the Aargauer Musikwettbewerb (Competition of the canton of Aargau).In 2015  she took part in the Schweizer Jugendmusikwettbewerb (National Youth Competition of Switzerland) for the first time and obtained the first prize twice (entrance competition and final) along with two special awards from the Hirschmann foundation and EMCY network.  She applied for three music colleges in Berne, Lucerne and Zurich. After receiving positive answers from all three colleges she decided to study voice in Berne, starting from September 2015.
