Franziska Jahn, born in 1981, studied musicology and cultural management at the Franz Liszt Conservatory in Weimar from 2003 to 2009. Growing up in Munich, she came into contact with the independent cultural scene at an early age through her parents’ house: Her school years were marked by cello lessons at the Städtische Musikschule München, participation in various ensembles and youth orchestras as well as a continuous collaboration in the TamS (Theater am Sozialamt) in Schwabing. Her studies in Weimar gave her the opportunity to continue her involvement in many cultural projects, which confirmed her interest in cultural work.
After stays abroad in England, France and Belgium, Franziska now lives in Dresden with her husband and two children. Since 2009 she has been working alongside Markus Rindt for the Dresden Symphony Orchestra. In addition to the planning and acquisition of performance opportunities, she has already supervised many of the orchestra’s projects. In addition, she has been working as a captioning and video director at the Sächsische Staatsoper Dresden since 2007.
