Prof. Dr. Helmut Reuter
Helmut Reuter is professor of psychology at the University of Bremen and has a focus on General and Neuropsychology as well as Cultural Psychology and Legal Psychology. Another area of research is the application of psychology to everyday life, including all topics related to life and social existence. The combination of scientific and artistic work is not least of all determined by his biographical background and forms the basis of, among other things, his views on the concept of education.
“To me education is not only the acquisition of technical capabilities and knowledge which facilitates career advancement but first and foremost the evolution and growth of the personality as a life-long undertaking.”
Ulrike Range worked – after she took her Masters in Ethnology, Sociology and Japanese Studies, altogether with extended trips trough Europe, Asia, North and South America – for 30 years by now in the fields of classical music.

In addition to that she worked as a judge in many different contests and and also got involved in the Music Council Brandenburg and the German Music Council for Music Business.

In addition to his work for the IfBK Artists Management he is working for the management of the Symphony Orchestra Wuppertal since September of 2015.
“It doesn’t matter if its the great symphony orchestra in concert or just the small rock band playing in the garage. For me music stands for the expression and language of our very own soul. You need to experience it live, you need to celebrate it, and you need to share it with other people. I see it as my duty to help musicians bringing their music to the people, so that this beautiful language won’t ever die.”
