2013 brings structural developments at Konzertdirektion Schmid


Burkhard Glashoff is stepping down as Vice President of Konzertdirektion Schmid in June 2013 to take up the position of Managing Director at Konzertdirektion Goette in Hamburg. This change is taking place in the best possible understanding with company owner, Pascal Funke. With his new role at Konzertdirektion Goette, in the promotional side of the music business, Burkhard Glashoff will also remain a close strategic partner for Konzertdirektion Schmid’s orchestra tours and projects in the future.

For Konzertdirektion Schmid, this brings a new company structure taking effect in 2013:

President Cornelia Schmid assumes responsibility for the strategic leadership of the Orchestra Department.

Karen McDonald assumes responsibility for the strategic leadership of the entire Artist Management Department.  In addition to her post as Vice President, she is appointed Managing Director (Geschäftsführerin) of Konzertdirektion Schmid.

Julia Albrecht joins Konzertdirektion Schmid in March 2013 as Director and to head the Artist Management Department in Hannover.  As some may remember, Julia Albrecht previously worked for Konzertdirektion Schmid as Artist Manager from 1995-2004. She then founded her own business, which she successfully ran for eight years, and is currently the Managing Director of the International Joseph Joachim Violin Competition. We look forward immensely to the renewed collaboration with her.

With this new structure, we are confident that we are securing a happy and prosperous future for Konzertdirektion Schmid.
