Professor Thomas Gries
Head of Collegium Musicum's academic management is Professor Thomas Gries in his role of academic director. As Senate Commissioner, he represents the entire ensemble before the university administration and the Senate, a particular goal being to maintain or even expand the financial resources allotted to Collegium Musicum. His team is there to help him handle the regular tasks.
Moritz Kampmann is Professor Gries’s right hand man in all matters. Among others, this includes tasks such as the preparation of a responsible financial plan with the help of accounting, the approval of everyday expenses, and having regular communications with university administrative departments. He works on clearing away any administrative hurdles that students working on a voluntary basis may encounter and tries to provide them with the best possible conditions to implement their ideas and activities. He also leads and supervises the conductors' four assistants responsible for orchestra and choir, and he is always available to answer any procedural questions they might have or to give them general advice.
Melanie takes care of accounting and processes all invoices and payment transactions. She also manages all contracts for services or sponsorship and she is responsible for executing all procurement transactions. In addition, she and Moritz together monitor that Collegium Musicum is compliant with the budget approved for the semester.
