The admission procedure for the Master's degree program in Performing Arts and Music Management comprises two stages.
All graduates in artistic or other subjects (such as theater, music, cultural studies, etc.) with an interest in working for a theater, orchestra, festival, or production location of the German independent theater and music scene should apply in writing by May 15, 2018. Applicants do not need to provide a degree certificate with their application but must provide proof of graduation by the beginning of the winter semester.
The application essay and the documents will be evaluated by a three-member Selection Committee headed by the Director of Studies, Prof. Dr. Thomas Schmidt. On the basis of these documents, those deemed the best candidates will be invited for an interview on June 20, 2018.
Please send your documents to the following address no later than May 15, 2018 (the postmark applies):
Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt am Main
Eschersheimer Landstr. 29 - 39
D-60322 Frankfurt am Main
Parallel to this we would ask you to send your application by e-mail to the Director of Studies Prof. Dr. Thomas Schmidt (thomas.schmidt(at)hfmdk-frankfurt.de).
Selected candidates will be invited to take the entrance examination on June 20, 2018. The entrance examination consists of a colloquium (an oral examination in the group and a one-to-one interview) in which the applicant will be asked about current cultural policy issues.
If you have any questions about your application for the Master's in Performing Arts and Music Management, please contact Magdalena Huschka (Assistant to the Director of Studies): theater_und_orchestermanagement(at)hfmdk-frankfurt.de
Please formulate your ideas and thoughts on either the theater or the orchestra, considering social changes in Germany and in Europe as well as in theaters themselves and the current debates on equality, diversity, and participation. Write an essay of 12 to 15 pages outlining your views. You should focus on the aspects that you consider important. This is not about right or wrong ideas but about trying to find ways to define or outline what a theater or an orchestra of the future might look like – in particular, one able to handle future challenges in an innovative way.
