The Conductor
Helmut WULZ  

Prof Mag. Helmut Wulz received his musical education at the teacher training college in Klagenfurt and at the Music Conservatory of Carinthia. He then continued his studies in music teaching and composition at the Vienna Music Academy and studied German and Folklore at the University of Vienna at the same time.

From 1956 to 1962 he was a member of the Vienna Music Academy Chamber Choir, participating in concert tours in various European and non-European countries with Gnther Theuring and Th. Christian David.

Since 1964 Helmut Wulz has been the conductor of the A cappella Choir Villach. He has also been the conductor of the Carinthian Choral Association, and he is a speaker at various seminars for conductors of choral music. He is a member of the Carinthian Association of Folksong and has for 45 years been the conductor and coordinator of the Carninthian (Anderluh) choral music weeks.

His publications of folk-songs and his contributions to the research in folk-songs, especially his research in the singing tradition in German settlements in Eastern Europe, gave him supra-regional recognition.

As an appreciation of his many achievements in his cultural work Helmut Wulz received several honours and prizes, amongst them as the latest one the Honorary Citizenship of the City of Villach in March 2007.
