Folkwang

Event Technology

One important area of technical management is Event Technology. All events in the course of the semester that lead to performances are managed by this department. In the lead-up, this involves organising technical operations. This extends from managing rehearsals to creating the necessary scenery to set construction to artistic lighting to managing the ongoing performances on one of the university's 6 stages.

Events Technologies manages all performances by Folkwang musicians, dancers and other performing artists on-site, in the external institutes of the Folkwang University of the Arts or at outside venues in the case of guest appearances and cooperative projects. These range from choir concerts to symphonic performances by the University orchestra, concerts by soloists and ensembles, and elaborate operatic, dramatic, musical and dance performances by individual departments. Events in the musicological and theoretical departments, events involving school musicians and church musicians and also the qualifying examinations, admission examinations and graduation examinations are supervised by Events Management.

Around 300 performance events are held every year in the university’s own performance venues or performance spaces outside the university. Events Management is also much in demand as a partner organisation for special events and other major events, competitions, master classes, symposia, festivals and the like that take place the course of the year.

Staff in this group within the technical department also supervise all audio and video systems in the teaching spaces of the Folkwang University of the Arts.

Fleet Services & Orchestra Managers

The university’s Fleet Services Department looks after work-related travel by staff of the President’s office, the Chancellery and individual departments – as well as the usual range of material transport that may be required – with the university’s vehicle fleet.

Orchestra Managers are responsible for setting up and managing the rehearsals and performances of the universitiy´s various ensembles. They support (for example) chamber musicians as well as wind and string ensembles, but of course above all the university's choir and - first and foremost - the Folkwang University of the Arts symphony orchestra. At our in-house events, and also at performances by the ensembles elsewhere, they are the first point of contact for the performers.
