Jan Hage (*1964) studied musicology at the University of Utrecht, organ (Jan Welmers) and music theory at the Utrecht Conservatoire, and church music at the Netherlands Institute for Church Music. For two years he studied, with help from the French government, at the Conservatoire National de Région at Boulogne-Billancourt near Paris: organ (with André Isoir), composition, electronic music composition, and orchestration.
Jan Hage gives organ recitals all over Holland and abroad. His advocacy of contemporary music makes him a regular guest performer at ensembles and orchestras such as the ASKO Ensemble, the Percussion Group The Hague, the Rotterdam Philharmonic, the Dutch Wind Ensemble and others. He was organist at Kloosterk, The Hague, in 1995-2011 and was appointed organist at Domkerk, Utrecht, in 2011. He is also active as a composer, having written works for organ, ensembles and vocal works.
