Concord Music – A&R Manager, Publishing (DE)

Concord Music’s Berlin office is looking to employ a full time Manager for our A&R department in publishing.

We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual to join us in this diverse and dynamic area of work.

Company Overview

Concord Music is the independent, worldwide leader in the development, acquisition and management of recorded music, music publishing and theatrical performance rights.

With offices in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, London, Berlin and Cleveland, Concord Music has a diverse and vibrant roster of active recording artists, composers, and songwriters, and a vast and historic catalog of works by some of the most treasured names in music history.

Concord Music’s publishing business was transformed in 2017 when it acquired Imagem Music Group and integrated it with Concord’s existing publishing operation, The Bicycle Music Company.

This combination resulted in a catalog of over 390,000 copyrighted works, spanning all musical genres and containing many of the world’s most celebrated compositions.

Concord Music also supports a diverse group of current composers and songwriters who are continually creating important and commercially-successful new musical works.

With the Imagem acquisition, Concord Music also added Boosey & Hawkes, the world’s leading specialist classical music publisher, and the legendary Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization.

In 2018, Concord Music welcomed the renowned musical theatre library, Tams-Witmark to its publishing business. Boosey & Hawkes, Rodgers & Hammerstein and Tams-Witmark will remain as individual business units under the Concord Music umbrella.
