The complexity and challenges of managing my own ensemble since 2012 motivated me to study a Master’s degree in Cultural Management at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, which I finished in 2019.
I did the Practicum for my degree at L’Auditori de Barcelona in their social program Apropa Cultura. This program aims to make culture accessible to vulnerability groups and to people at risk of social exclusion. My responsibilities included marketing, communication and publicity tasks, workshop organization and pedagogical assignments.
In the summer of 2021 I worked at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival (SHMF) in orchestra management. I was based in the offices of the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra, an orchestra academy for Young musicians from all over the world.
The same year I started a Practicum at the Kammerorchester Basel (KOB), in Switzerland. My tasks there were divided between communication and project management.
