    There is a lot of reading, listening, research and travel involved in my line of work; I stumble across many interesting things and ideas I can't just leave behind so I decided to write about them.

  • About / Über mich

    Kirsten is a music dramaturgist, producer, and project manager based in the UK. She has worked within the classical music scene since her first job at Credit Suisse CH in the Sponsorship department, happily supporting festivals, ensembles and artists and making things happen. When being involved in curating a programme and working closely with artistic directors behind the scene, she researches, selects, edits, formulates and weaves stories around a concert programme. During her family time Kirsten turned to writing, translating, editing and website design and added these skills to her portfolio. It is the interdisciplinary approach which she loves the most about her work.

    She studied Literature (with an emphasis on music!) and Economics for a Masters degree, writing her thesis about 'Heinrich Heine and Saint Simon'. In her PhD dissertation she focused on Arts Sponsorship.

    She sings in chamber choirs and played the oboe in another life.

    Dr Kirsten Fehring ist freie Musikdramaturgin, Produzentin und Projekt Managerin in Grossbritannien. Nach ihrem erste Job in der Kultursponsoring Abteilung der Credit Suisse wechselte sie die Seiten und arbeitet seitdem mit verschiedene Ensemble, Festivals und Künstler*innen im kuratorischen, organisatorischen und administrativen Bereich.

    Schwerpunkte setzte Kirsten schon immer im Bereich Klassische Musik. Ein interdisziplinärer Ansatz begeistert sie und zeichnet so auch ihre Arbeit im Bereich der Musik aus.

    Ihren Master machte sie an der Universität Freiburg in den Bereichen Literatur (mit Schwerpunkt Musik!) und Wirtschaft mit einer fächerübergreifenden Arbeit zu Heine und dem Saint Simonismus. In ihrer Doktorarbeit beschäftigte sie sich mit Kultursponsoring, der Schnittstelle von Kultur und Wirtschaft, eine praxisbezogene Arbeit, basierend auf Erfahrungen und Untersuchungen während ihrer Zeit in der Kultursponsoring Abteilung der Credit Suisse, Zürich. Ihre Oboe hat sie in den letzten Jahren extrem vernachlässigt.
