Adam Maas - the new band guy at KIconcerts

Greetings fellow band musicians,

I wanted to let you know I have just joined the KIconcerts team. This is such a great fit as I have been playing in wind ensembles for most of my life and have a passion for staging concerts for fine bands around the world.

KIconcerts arranges the finest international band concert tours for ensembles - be it exchange performances in Vienna, with Frank Ticheli in London's Central Westminster Hall, in festivals at the Sydney Opera house, performing outreach concerts in South Africa or last week’s band tour for Snow College in Costa Rica. Wherever we take you, we’ll apply the same planning principles; safety and comfort, performances with great instruments in engaging venues for appreciative audiences as well as hotels, food and great touring that makes up the full exciting package.

Adam Maas, KIconcerts
I took my first performance tour as part of the University of St. Thomas Wind Ensemble with the team from KIconcerts to Australia in the spring of 1998. I fully understood the value of international concert tours from that moment on. I toured again with KI last year, this time to India, as part of UST’s amazing tour there. From this experience I decided to work in the area of planning and operating international concert tours for US ensembles and was pleased to be offered a position at KI, America’s leading international concert tour planning company. I am passionate about getting the touring experience right for bands. I know first-hand the issues involved in moving instruments, the impact of things like different climates etc. and the unique effort involved on your part to move an instrumental ensemble.

I have just returned from hosting a tour in Italy for the Towson University Symphonic Band and have included below some comments we received from the Director a few days ago.

I just wanted to take a moment of your time now to let you know I am now at KI, and that I will be making contact to see how I might help develop the perfect international concert tour for you and your band.

Many thanks and I will be in touch to follow up your thoughts on international concert tour opportunities.
