Ben Uhle

Executive Director

I was born in Halle an der Saale in 1973, moved to Dresden at the age of eight to join the Dresdner Kreuzchor.

After graduating from high school in Dresden, I did my civilian service in a nursing home in Hamburg. After a longer stay in Australia and starting to study medicine, I studied "Culture and Management" in Görlitz, which I completed in 2004 with a degree in business administration. In 2006 I obtained my Master of Art at the TU-Dresden.

Already in 2004 I founded my cultural management company "netzwerk projektziel" together with the pastor Lüder Laskowski. Our team mastered countless small and large projects in the years that followed. In 2010, together with the artistic director Hans-Christoph Rademann, I founded the landscape music festival 'Musikfest Erzgebirge', of which I am still the managing director today. Since the end of 2019, I have been part of the inner management team of AuditivVokal Dresden together with Olaf Katzer and Nicole Meier, where I have an executive position.

In addition to my work in front of and behind the stage, I also enjoy being on stage myself as a singing member of renowned ensembles.

Nicole Meier


I spent the first four years of my life in Switzerland, on Lake Zurich, in Libya and in England. I realised early on that I liked arts subjects better than maths. I spent my free time taking ballet lessons. At the age of 10 I decided to become a dancer. My youth was spent at the theatre dance school in St.Gallen.

Thanks to hard training I was accepted at the Palucca Schule Dresden - Hochschule für Tanz, where I discovered my love for modern dance, improvisation and choreography.As a correspondence course I also studied at the Laban Center Zurich and graduated with the I.S.T. diploma.

After my studies in Dresden I got my first engagement in Zimbabwe. Back in Europe I got my first engagement as a guest dancer at the Sächsische Staatsoper Dresden. Since then I have created over 40 choreographies at home and abroad. I studied Culture and Management at the DIU - Dresden International University and graduated with a Master of Arts.

Olaf Katzer

Artistic Director

Olaf Katzer studied music and psychology in Munich, Weimar and Dresden. While still a student, he founded the Ensemble AuditivVokal Dresden, which he has artistically directed ever since.

Over 120 premieres, guest performances at numerous festivals and radio recordings document his commitment to "contemporary" vocal music. Concert tours have taken him to almost all European countries, as well as to Taiwan, China, the USA and South America. In transdisciplinary exchange with singers, instrumentalists, dancers, composers, painters, directors and scientists, he develops a contemporary ensemble art for the 21st century in sustained and unconventional programming.

He got invited as a conductor of ensembles such as the RIAS Kammerchor, the SWR Vokalensemble Stuttgart, the MDR Rundfunkchor and the Dresdner Kammerchor. Since 2011 he has been a lecturer for choral conducting at the Dresden University of Music, since the academic year 2015/16 in the function of substitute professor for choral conducting. In 2019 Olaf Katzer received the Förderpreis der Landeshauptstadt Dresden and in 2020 the Arras Prize.
