Central & Eastern Europe Concert Manager
Helmut regards his hometown Vienna as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Bruckner and Mahler are just a few of the famous composers who created immortal music in Vienna. Growing up in this wonderful city and being raised in a family that loves the arts, he was privileged to be a member of the Vienna Auersperg Boys Choir. After that he deepened his musical knowledge at the Music School of Vienna where he took lessons in Music Theory, Choir and Piano.
At the University of Vienna Helmut studied History, German Literature, Linguistics and Educational Theory. During these years as a University Student, he worked part time as a Tour Manager for MCI, taking music groups to various European countries (Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, France, Belgium, Netherlands). Three years later, he became the Central European Tour Manager Coach for MCI and had the duty to recruit, train and supervise the MCI Tour Managers. In these capacities, he has developed a deep understanding of the priorities and interests of music groups of any kind.
Since 2004, Helmut has been a Concert Manager for MCI and arranges and promotes concerts in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. He has extensive connections to all the local agencies, municipalities, promotional agents & venues (ranging from outdoor squares to schools to churches & cathedrals to concert halls) in these countries that would ensure that each touring ensemble has an unparalleled concert tour experience.
