Support Association

Turning ideas into art

Music and dance enrich our lives. To keep it that way, we support young talents in realizing their artistic ideas. In order to strengthen talent and bring it to the public, funding is indispensable for the university. In the sponsoring association, we accompany the music and dance talents of the future already during their studies and encourage young people to follow their passion.

Promote with joy

Large concerts, scholarships or instrument purchases - many of these are only made possible through our support. We determine our diverse range of support together with the university management. In addition to financial support for projects and events or through scholarships, it is also our mission to make the university known to the public and to pass on our shared passion for music and dance.

Whether in the cathedral, the philharmonic hall or the concert hall, at jazz ensemble evenings or with dance in the studio theater - everywhere in the city, the students are part of Cologne's rich cultural scene. Under the title "Spitzentöne" the chamber music series of the university is created every year with the support of the Förderverein in Cologne. In 2019, the association also launched the Roderburg Opera Prize to promote young opera talent.

You can find more information about our activities and events at the Cologne location on the website of the Friends.



Vocal students can be heard on the Wuppertal stages and the university also regularly plays in the symphony orchestra. At the concerts of the Bergische Gesellschaft für Neue Musik and the Bergische Biennale für Neue Musik, teachers and students are represented with their own contributions. Over the decades, a dense network of private and public sponsors has developed in the city, which is constantly being expanded in cooperation with the university.

The sponsoring association is always happy to welcome new members. But you can also support young music and dance talents with individual donations.
