About us

Ulrike Range Director and Artist Manager

Having grown up in a village between Hannover and Braunschweig, I left Germany after finishing high school for a one year-stay in Japan. I then studied Anthropology, Social science and Japanology at the Freie Universität Berlin, but my love for classical music was stronger. Starting in young years, I learnt several instruments – recorder, piano, flugelhorn, organ, bassoon and singing – and I never lost this love for music, even after 30 years in the profession.
